Community Better Challenge

Join us for the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge. This year A Place for YOUth is offering free programs for youth ages 11 to 17. All programs require pre-registration and are offered at Woodman Park Community Centre, located at 491 Grey Street in Brantford. All programs take place outdoors unless it is raining. If it is raining the program will move indoors.

The City also invites members of the community to record their physical activity from June 1 until June 30, 2022 in the ParticipACTION app available for download through the App Store and Google Play. Every minute tracked supports our local community score and brings us that much closer to being awarded Canada’s Most Active Community. Learn more about the Community Better Challenge at
