Plan a Neighbourhood Game

What is a Neighbourhood Game?

Playing for Keeps Neighbourhood Games are playful, simple, and local events that invite people to come together and enjoy their communities.

Anyone can plan one. It simply has to be a playful activity — sports, arts, music, or food — that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. 

The Playing for Keeps program has wrapped up! But, that doesn't mean you have to stop playing. Get out there and meet your neighbours, plan new and exciting games, and remember that because of leaders like you the neighbourhood will never be the same!
