Healthy Kids Community Challenge. 

Renfrew County wants kids to "Power Off and Play". 

The current theme for the area Healthy Kids Community Challenge, focuses on limiting children's recreational and sedentary screen time and applications for projects around the region with that focus were submitted to the County for funding. 

Among some of the projects that have been approved for funding following consultation with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care; include an Accessible Playground in Deep River, Pickelball Program in Whitewater, Equipment to be housed at the Pembroke Public Library, Natural Play Spaces in several municipalities and a Washroom at the Splash Pad in Renfrew. All the projects are to be completed by the end of summer.
