Play in the Park program

Play in the Park is a free, supervised, outdoor program for children aged 6 to 12 years old.

Children will participate in fun recreational activities including organized games, sports, crafts, theme days, and special events in local neighbourhood parks. All our programs are supervised by qualified staff trained in HIGH FIVE® principles of healthy child development.

How to register

A new online option for weekly pre-registration is available. Daily participation will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Arrive early, spaces may be limited at some park locations.

To ensure we are in compliance with safe supervision standards, regardless of registration, daily participation numbers will be counted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
