FAMILIES across the City of Rockingham are encouraged to head outdoors and take part in the City’s Summer Parks Challenge throughout January.
The Summer Parks Challenge gives residents the chance to explore the City’s parks and playgrounds, answer a checkpoint question and complete an outdoor challenge for the chance to win a prize.
Parks involved in the Summer Parks Challenge include: Fantasy Park (Waikiki), Charnley Reserve (Waikiki), The Avenue Reserve (Warnbro), Eva Lynch Park (Warnbro), Lions Park (Shoalwater), Callawa Reserve (Golden Bay), Trusty Park (Baldivis), Overton Reserve (Baldivis), Chesapeake Reserve (Port Kennedy) and The Harbour Playground (Secret Harbour).
City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said there were a range of great prizes up for grabs including experience passes from Rockingham Wild Encounters, a new bicycle from KD cycles and more.
“The City’s Summer Parks Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for children and families to get outdoors and be physically active over the summer holidays,” he said.
“We are fortunate to have many fantastic parks and playgrounds in our City and the Summer Parks Challenge gives residents even more reasons to get out and visit them.”
To participate, residents can pick up a Summer Parks Challenge Passport at one of the City’s libraries or from the City’s website via http://rockingham.wa.gov.au/Community/Get-active/Get-active-outdoors.
To be in the running to win prizes residents should return their completed passports to the City of Rockingham Administration Building by February 1.
Prizes are for Rockingham residents aged 12 years and under.
