Pin It


Play is…

  • Engagement in activity for enjoyment and recreation.
  • Freely chosen, personally directed, intrinsically motivated behaviour.

Play Days is a Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador province-wide special events initiative, designed to celebrate play. Inspired by ParticipACTION’s 150 Play List, Play Days is a multi-community event (meaning, neighbouring communities work together to host an event) designed to celebrate play by encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get out and active. The focus of each event will be to promote the benefits and value of recreation and play for all ages. With that in mind, each hosting community have the opportunity to make their Play Days event unique to their area.

The links below were created to help communities to plan and promote their Play Days event.
