**** HRM Media Release
Online recreation activities now available
The municipality is committed to providing opportunities for residents of all ages to stay active while following public health measures. As June 6 is National Health and Fitness Day, Parks & Recreation is launching “Rec at Home.” Activities will include:
- Arts and crafts
- Camp games
- Dance and fitness
- Exploring nature
- Physical activities and sport games
Check back often, as new activities are being added regularly.
As a first activity to try, residents are encouraged to take part in both the Fitness & Recreation Challenge and the Nature Scavenger Hunt. Residents will be encouraged to share a photo or short video of themselves participating via private message to the Halifax Parks & Recreation Facebook page which will be shared in a compilation video showing the fun ways to enjoy recreation during COVID-19.
All activities will be posted on halifax.ca/recathome. Virtual recreation videos will be posted to the Halifax Regional Municipality’s YouTube page and the Halifax Parks & Recreation Facebook page.
