Are the kids bored – looking for something to do?

Very few families have every piece of sports equipment their kids would like to use.

The City has developed a program where sports equipment can be borrowed.

The program is being run out of the Brant Hills Community Centre. Equipment is borrowed for a one-week period from Tuesday to Monday.

Equipment booking can only be done online at burlington.ca/playlending with pick-up and drop-off at the east entrance of the Brant Hills Community Centre.

Some of the equipment available to borrow includes hockey sticks, croquet set, cornhole, bocce, tennis rackets, ladder toss and much more.

The full list is available on burlington.ca/playlending.

All equipment and bags will be thoroughly sanitized between uses to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you have questions – use the email address: communityconnects@burlington.ca.

Denise Beard, Manager of Community Development make a good point when she said: “Anyone wanting to try a new sport or activity should check out some of the equipment we have for free lending. You or your kids might find a new favourite activity they really like and want to pursue further. It can also be that it’s just something different to break up the monotony that can fall upon the dog-days of summer. Now that we have casual use of our parks, it’s another great opportunity to get out and play outside.”
