City to Launch Rockingham Play Trails Initiative
Date23 October 2020
To celebrate Children’s Week, the City of Rockingham is set to set to launch ‘Rockingham Play Trails’, a new community initiative that will be available on the Nature Play WA Play Trails app from Monday 26 October 2020.
Children’s Week runs from 24 October to 1 November 2020 and is an annual event that provides the community with an opportunity to engage in a variety of activities that facilitate, support and encourage children and their families to play, learn and grow together.
Families are invited to download ‘Rockingham Play Trails’ to engage in an interactive outdoor digital scavenger hunt.
The app promotes physical activity, mental wellness and connection with culture and nature in the community. It features 15 different Rockingham play trails that families can explore to solve quiz questions, complete challenges and score points.
“Rockingham Play Trails is an exciting new initiative that the City is pleased to be able to launch for the community,” City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said.
Fostering positive mental health outcomes is important to building a stronger community, and the ‘Rockingham Play Trails’ app aligns with the Act-Belong-Commit message the City has proudly supported for many years. Keeping mentally healthy is just as important as staying physically healthy.
“Rewards in the form of vouchers for selected local cafes will be hidden at a number of Rockingham play trail locations between Monday 26 October and Sunday 1 November, so we encourage the community to download the app and get involved.”
Rockingham Play Trails is available on the Nature Play WA Play Trails app, which can be downloaded from Rockingham Play Trails.
