Welcome to PLAY in Bruce Grey

Join us for the 9th Annual Longest Day of PLAY on June 21st. Take the opportunity to kick off summer on the right foot by being active for at least 30:00.

This report card focuses on play and the outdoors and includes a Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play. Overall, 70% of children ages 3-4 get the recommended 180 minutes of daily activity. However, as the guidelines change to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity per day for ages 5 and up only 9% of kids meet the requirement. Canada's grade remains a D- for the third straight year.

 The LONGEST DAY of PLAY will take place on Sunday June 21st, 2015. New this year, PLAY will no longer be tracking PLAY hours by community but rather encouraging residents to get out and enjoy all that Grey Bruce has to offer. Stay tuned for great events happening in your community. Click on the Longest Day of PLAY link on the main page for more information.

Thanks again to our great sponsor Bruce Power and 92.3 The Dock.
