Safety Town—a summertime staple in Ann Arbor— is back, and helping more kids learn to keep safe

Registration is still open for some sessions of the program co-hosted by AAPS’ Community Education & Recreation & the Ann Arbor Police Department

Community Education & Recreation’s annual Safety Town is a memorable summertime event for our youngest students, who have fun while learning important, age-appropriate safety practices to last a lifetime.

Designed for Young 5’s, kindergarteners and first graders, Safety Town is held again this summer at Dicken Elementary, and allows the opportunity for children to explore a child-sized town with traffic signals on foot and bicycle, listen to police, fire, and healthcare officials talk about potentially dangerous situations, meet “Buster the Bus” and learn about bus safety, and listen to stories and create art that enforces the safety lessons.

Each student is fitted with and gifted a new bike helmet.

As of June 21, 2023, spots are still available in upcoming sessions, which run from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday at Dicken elementary. The age requirement is at least 5, but younger than 7 years, 7 months.
