Kentville Plays in 2018!
Each month we will be sharing a Kentville Plays challenge here on our website and across our social media platforms. Take on the challenge, snap a photo and share it with us as we work to make Kentville the most playful community in Canada!

February: go sledding!
Grab you sled, sleigh, toboggan, magic carpet or saucer, plus some friends or family and take to the hills! Feel that wind in your face as you fly through February! In town we love sledding at Burgher Hill, Memorial Park and Oakdene Park. Don’t forget to send us your pictures!
January: build a snowman!
Head outside, in your front yard or in our local parks, and build a creation of snow! Playing in the snow is a terrific way to shake off the winter blues, and doesn’t seeing a snowman make you want to make one of your own? Let’s get outside and play while we cover our town in snow creations this month!
