Kentville Playboxes

Thanks to the Acadia Community Development Department for the creation of this video

Three Kentville Playboxes will be popping up in Kentville this spring. Each Playbox will be filled with a collection of equipment (sports equipment, lawn games, jump ropes, and much more).

The Playboxes are here to provide community access to play; to ensure that everyone can play and have fun!

There are just a few rules for using the Playboxes. They are:

  1. Play with the equipment and RETURN them when you’re done…don’t forget to CLOSE the lid!
  2. Help keep this program running by donating new or gently used equipment
  3. Let us know if this box needs attention by calling us at (902) 679-2540 or emailing us at
  4. Have fun!

Please note: The use of the Playbox and its contents is at your own risk


The Kentville Playboxes are a project of the Kings Country Family Resource Centre & the Town of Kentville and are made possible with funds from the Province of Nova Scotia Department of Communities Culture and Heritage
