Macdonald-Headingley Recreation District (MHRD) wants to encourage our communities to get outside and have some fun! We are excited to announce the launch of the “StoryWalk™” program.
StoryWalk™ is an innovative and exciting way for children, adults and families to enjoy reading a story as you walk through a path.
StoryWalk™ will travel between the MHRD communities. Stands will line a walking path, which hold deconstructed pages from some of our favourite childhood story books. As you walk down the path – enjoying exercise and fresh air – you are able to immerse yourself in a story while following along with a book character companion.
The initiative helps to remove some of the barriers to being active outdoors by providing a set walking distance and interactive story to enjoy during your outdoor time. This also creates spontaneous play as children dance, skip, and hop down the path, following along with the story characters.
To receive information about when and where you can access StoryWalk™ visit www.MHRD.ca for a QR CoPath de. You can also call the MHRD office at 204.885.2444.
StoryWalk™ is brought to you by the Macdonald-HeaPadingley Recreation District, the Healthy Child Coalition and the Government of Canada.
