KENTVILLE, NS – There’s always time to play.

The Kentville Parks and Recreation Department hosted an evening of play for families and members of the community on National Play Day, Aug. 1.

Five play stations were set up along the Harvest Moon Trail between the Kentville Memorial Pool and Kings County Academy for families and children of all ages to come together and play.

The play stations included the Playbox at the Kentville Memorial Pool, Splash Pad, Frog Pond, Skate Park, and the Loose Parts PlayPod.

“We’ve done a number of play events since we launched Kentville Plays in November 2017, but this this the first time we’re doing a National Play Day activity,” said Julia Stephenson, active living community coordinator with the Town of Kentville.
