Celebrating Recreation and Parks Month this June

June is Recreation & Parks Month! To celebrate, the Municipality of East Hants is hosting an interactive series of online contests to encourage residents to get outside and get active throughout the month.

Recreation and Parks Month is a time to remember the importance of participating in recreation and appreciating parks and outdoor spaces. Spending time outside, incorporating movement into your daily routine, and joining in community activities are all ways that recreation promotes better health and wellbeing. Plus, East Hants is home to many parks and outdoor spaces for you to enjoy and celebrate Recreation & Parks Month.


Residents can follow our Active East Hants Facebook page to watch for contest posts based on the schedule below. Winners will be randomly drawn from comments on the posts as well as from entries received by email*. Prizes vary from week to week!
