Read below for more information on the Alberta Recreation Parks Association

Creative Recreation Challenge!


We all get stuck thinking inside the box – when someone says recreation we picture sports

or a nature walk – you know, the usual.

What if we said recreation was going to a local improv show or having a water fight?

How about bird-watching or learning to knit?

We think recreation is so much more than physical activity!



Recreation has a wide definition, and all parts are essential to creating thriving

communities with healthy and happy citizens.

ARPA has developed a calendar to help you try Creative Recreation.

Try one, two or all 30 of the daily challenges!

Take a photo of you trying one of the activities and post them on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram

with the #JRPM2016 hashtag to be entered to win a 2016 National Parks Family Pass.


The more photos of the different activities you send, the more times you’ll be entered!
