West Lincoln Healthy Kids Community Challenge
Daily physical activity is the first of three themes in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge program, in which the Township is enrolled, encourages children to participate in daily physical activity. The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is a key component in the Ontario Government’s Healthy Kids Strategy – a cross-government initiative that aims to improve children’s health and well-being by focusing on a healthy start in life, healthy food and healthy active communities. Niagara’s Action Plan for Theme 1 – Run. Jump. Play. Every day. – has been approved by the Ministry and this includes the “West Lincoln Community Centre Playground Area Enhancement Project”.
The Township will complete enhancements to the playground at the West Lincoln Community Centre. Funds will be used to plant trees, replace pea gravel with accessible mulch, install lighting and install West Lincoln Parks’ signage. The project will begin in spring 2016 and carry into the summer with a ribbon cutting event at completion.
