Free Playgroups in Arcata
The City of Arcata Recreation Division, with funding from First 5 Humboldt, offers a free playgroup for families and caregivers with children ages newborn to 5 years old.
Playgroup is a safe and comfortable environment for children to interact with other children while learning
important playtime social skills. Caregivers have an opportunity to gain support from each other. Explore
Arcata’s parks and playgrounds together. Please leave personal toys at home—there will be some items in
multiples to share.
Weather permitting, Arcata Park Playdates are held on Wednesdays at the Chevret-Vaissade Park
located at 1760 Felix Avenue from 10 a.m –1 p.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, there is a rotating
monthly schedule visiting different parks from 10 a.m.–12 p.m. A printable calendar with more
information about dates, times, and park locations is available at the City of Arcata website at
cityofarcata.org/rec. For more information contact the Arcata Recreation Division at 707-822-7091.
