I enthusiastically supported the proposal from Parks & Rec to install an Adventure Playground in our City Centre as I am a strong supporter of the opportunities offered by these types of playgrounds. With more families being raised in homes without backyards, I believe today’s children need more opportunities to play and explore. And more opportunities to do so without structure.
Recently, I was invited to attend a street hockey game in a cul-de-sac in Central Coquitlam. I believe this type of unstructured play is an important opportunity to embrace. Our children not only have a great time playing outside, they learn many life skills that may not be offered if all their recreational opportunities are planned and structured.
Initiatives to promote activity and impromptu play are something I am passionate about and will continue to promote and support.
