For Immediate Release
Friday, January 27, 2017
The City of Greater Sudbury, in partnership with the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, invites families to participate in Snow Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 4, 2017. Snow Day will be held at Bell Park, near the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre and will host several winter-themed activities families can enjoy at no cost.
Come out and enjoy snowshoeing, hiking, Indigenous games and storytelling, wagon rides, sledding, a petting zoo, a miniature snow maze and much more. A warm-up area will be available for families with babies and young children. It will be equipped with change tables and nursing stations. Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre and Kina Gbezhgomi will offer a campfire for warmth, and to provide a comfortable place for storytelling and bannock making. Free nutritious snacks and plenty of water will be available throughout the day.
Free public transit to Bell Park will be offered. No vouchers will be required, just inform the driver that you and your family are heading to Snow Day! Free sleds, helmets and equipment for activities will be available for loan at the entrance.
The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is a key part of Ontario's Healthy Kids Strategy, a cross-government initiative launched to promote children's health. Approximately every nine months, a new theme is chosen to guide participating communities. The current theme, Water Does Wonders, encourages children and families to drink more water, use reusable water bottles, and drink fewer sugary drinks.
Scheduled activities may change dependent on weather conditions. Please check the website or associated social media pages for updates.
