Live 5-2-1-0 Playboxes

To encourage families to be active, the Hope and Area Healthy Communities Committee has provided mobile and stationary Playboxes in Hope and the surrounding area. These mobile and stationary Playboxes have everything families need to play actively outside, with recreational equipment for sports games and activities for barrier-free access to play. 

Some of the equipment that can be found in the Playboxes include skipping ropes, hula hoops, frisbees, basketballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, badminton and tennis racquets, pickleball paddles, disc golf discs, and more!
