The Neighbourhood Nature Play project is a Kitchener-based initiative all about getting children and their families to play and learn in nature. Through this project, new natural play features will be added to Gzowski and Kingsdale Parks and free Nature Play programming will run year-round.

Here, children will have the freedom to be the architects of their environment, to invent and build using their own creativity and problem-solving skills, all while developing an appreciation for the natural world.

Public Programs

Weekly activities respond to the changing seasons and weather, and are based on the natural materials we have available. Most importantly, our activities are a great way to be active and connect with community, family and the environment that sustains us all. Our program themes are birds, trees, plants, and animals.
