Buena Vista Park Safe N’ Strong Summer Program Redesigned


The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department renovation project of Buena Vista Park has been delayed so the department is re-designing its Safe N’ Strong All Summer Long Summer Program.  Beginning Wednesday, June 13th,  the department will be transporting interested children from the Campfire Cabin at the park to the Minami Community Center Park, 600 West Enos Drive.


Recreation Leaders will meet program participants Monday through Friday at 10:00 a.m. and depart to Minami Community Park at 10:15 a.m. Transportation back to the Buena Vista Park Campfire Cabin will be provided at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Transportation is provided by the Recreation and Parks Department. Parent permission slips will be required and provided by the recreation staff at the park.


The Safe N’ Strong Program is open for youth ages six to 12. The program occurs Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. through Friday, August 12th. This free program is designed to help keep youth active, healthy, and safe during summer. Participants will enjoy interactive games, sports, and crafts while making new friends.


Buena Vista Park has been undergoing renovations since October 2016 and the grand re-opening celebration will occur on Saturday, August 11th from noon to 3:00 p.m.  There will be games and activities, food, and live music. The new design of the park will include gardens, grassy play areas, and a new playground.  Please plan on joining the Recreation and Parks Department for the festivities.
