Playground Development Strategy

It is the goal of East Hants Council to develop new playgrounds and restore older playgrounds that are inclusive to all children.

Although outdoor play can occur anywhere, the Municipality would like to ensure access to outdoor spaces where groups of children can come together to:

  • Play and develop motor skills
  • Take risks and push their limits
  • Interact with each other
  • Learn social norms in an environment that is safe and close to home

On March 30, 2022, Council approved the East Hants Playground Development Strategy. This strategy provides the Municipality with a road map on how to achieve playgrounds that provide engaging and energetic play for as many children as possible.
