DERRY — On recent warm summer days, Derry's Don Ball Park has been teeming with families and their children hoping to soak up some of the sun's rays, enjoy the playground and cool off in the park's popular Splashpad.

In addition to the regular park offerings, Derry Parks and Recreation offers regular weekly programs Wednesdays at 1 p.m. A recent patriotic program was held July 3 and featured the annual Happy Birthday America Party.

Children enjoyed a Fourth of July celebration parade, treats and craftmaking. The nearby Splashpad was also providing much-needed relief from the afternoon's sun.
