Burlington offers plenty of activities for local residents during June’s Month of Play
The City of Burlington is getting into the spirit of June being the Month of Play with a myriad of activities and things to do.
“There is always something fun to do around the city with all of our parks, trails and greenspace,” said Chris Glenn, director Recreation, Community and Culture. “Get outside and play, be active, have fun or just enjoy the space around you. The possibilities are endless.”
Here are some of the activities available in Burlington during June.
Get Outside and Play Challenge
The annual Get Outside and Play Challenge will run June 1 to Aug. 29. Residents are encouraged to explore all the places and spaces in Burlington with more than 90 activities available. The activities and challenges have been created so teams of individuals or families can participate in completing at least 90 activities in 90 days.
Great prizes await the winning team. Contest rules, information on the challenge and list of prizes are available on the City website.
June is Seniors Month
Adults 55+ can join in the fun at all City recreation and community centres across Burlington. Programs include fitness, sports, arts, games, socials, learning and music activities; and participants can join in programs offered online, indoor, outdoor and/or by telephone.
