Every summer the Friends of the Myrtle Street Playground sponsor  weekly Thursday afternoon programming from June through August. In the fall,  the Playground hosts a Back to School BBQ,  an annual Tag Sale Fundraiser, and Halloween BOO Party.  Spring brings the Easter Egg Hunt and an annual  playground clean-up.
