Over 100 options to be active during this Month of Play

By Staff

June 1st, 2022



June is the Month of Play and a perfect time for the city’s parks, trails, outdoor pools, splash pads, cultural areas, and events come to life with activities, people, and fun.

As the city celebrates June as the Month of Play, they encourage residents to get active indoors and outdoors and enjoy everything the City offers.

Get Outside and Play Challenge
Our annual Get Outside and Play Challenge will begin on June 1 and ends on Aug. 29, 2022. We encourage Burlington residents to explore all the places and spaces in Burlington with over 90 activities available. The activities and challenges have been created so teams of individuals or families can participate in completing at least 90 activities in 90 days.

Great prizes await the winning team. Contest rules, information on the challenge and list of prizes are available on our website at burlington.ca/playoutside.

June is also Seniors Month.
Adults 55+ can join in the fun at all City Recreation and Community Centers across Burlington. Programs include fitness, sports, arts, games, socials, learning and music activities; and participants can join in programs offered online, indoor, outdoor and/or by telephone.

Choose from registered programs of different lengths, and/or drop-in single visit pay-as-you-play programs (reserve a drop-in spot online or by phone in advance). Select inter-generational programs for anyone 19 and older or enjoy peer-age programs for adults 55 and older, if preferred.

For more information about June activities or other programs for Adults 55+, visit burlington.ca/adult.

Concerts in the Park presented by the Rocca Sisters
Concerts in the Park returns June 19 until Aug. 28. Sit back and enjoy free music at the Central Park Bandshell every Wednesday and Sunday from 7:30 to 9 p.m. The list of concerts can be found at burlington.ca/concerts.

Longest Day of Play
June 21 is the longest day of the year and also the longest day of play. Why not take advantage of the day and plan an event in your neighbourhood park? View the Love My Neighbourhood resources at burlington.ca/neighbourhood.

Pop Up n’ Play
Pop Up n’ Play is back this year in select locations in Burlington parks. Drop-by with your kids for fun times using imagination to create a different play experience through making a mess, building, and creating. Learn more at burlington.ca/popupnplay.
