Residents are being encouraged to get “Notoriously Active” in June as part of Parks and Recreation Month.
This year, the city, in collaboration with Wakamow Valley, released an activities calendar with events and activities you can take part in each day in June.
“It has 30 different ideas to get families out and about and get active. Lots of them are low to no cost,” said City of Moose Jaw Recreation Program Supervisor Nicole Walchuk.
You can download the events calendar here. You can register for any of the city’s recreation programs through the Online Recreation Registration link on the city’s website or the City of Moose Jaw app.
Residents are invited to take selfies and post them to social media throughout the month with the hashtag #NotoriouslyActive. Residents are also encouraged to take photos of their adventures in Wakamow Valley using the hashtag #ExploreWakamow.
“Wakamow is doing a photo contest for the month of June. It gives everybody an opportunity to snap their beautiful pictures of Wakamaw whether it's animals or kayakers on the river. Submit them to Wakamow and we will post it on our Facebook page and create something for it at the end of the year,” said Wakamow Valley Authority Manager Donna MacQuarrie-Bye.
Some of the events happening in Wakamow Valley that MacQuarrie-Bye highlighted included the Trans-Canada Trail cleanup and tree planting on Saturday. On June 17, Wakamow Valley is partnering with the Moose Jaw Shrine Club for the Children’s Festival from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kiwanis Oval.
The city is also encouraging residents to download the ParticipACTION app and participate in the “Community Better” Challenge.
