About This Project

Kentville wants to become Canada’s most playful community; one that takes play – and all of its benefits – very seriously. Kentville Plays aims to increase play in their community through events, programs and projects. Currently Kentville is providing residents with three community playboxes in Memorial Park, Oakdene Park, and Burgher Hill. These playboxes are filled with a range of play equipment including sports equipment, lawn games, jump ropes, and much more with seasonal items such as sleds added throughout the year.


The Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play helped contribute to the need for this initiative, and the statement is used as part of public education for the “why” of Kentville Plays.
