June is Recreation & Parks Month 

Recreation and Parks month initiated by Parks and Recreation Ontario (PRO), The Ontario Parks Association and the Ontario Recreation Facilities Association in 2005 was meant to draw attention to the incredible value of recreation and encourage people in the community to get out and get active! The City of Brantford offers residents a vast amount of recreational opportunities in the community centres, pools (indoor and outdoor), fitness facilities, fields, parks and trails. The Parks and Recreation Department have put together a list of free and low cost activities for the entire month! We encourage everyone to try something new and take part in all this amazing City has to offer! There is something for all ages and activity levels. Who knows - maybe you'll even love it and keep active all year long!
