Park Activation

Every Monday

Margaret Greene Park

Details: Park Activation returns to local parks this summer! Beginning the week of May 15th and running to the end of August, the Energize Guelph Park Activation team will be running free, drop in games and activities for children and parents. Our goal is to introduce children and parents to new and unique ways to use park spaces, make it easier for children to get active, and to help improve children’s physical and mental wellbeing. Look for Energize Guelph programmers and flags in these local parks. Please note that there will be no programming July 1st– 3rd and August 5th– 7th. Park Activation is not a child care program. In fact, we encourage parents to participate with their children – to join in on the fun and Run. Jump. Play. Everyday.
