There are many opportunities for residents and families to have fun and get active outdoors.
Our major community parks feature tennis courts, soccer fields, lawn bowling pitch, basketball courts, ball fields and children's playgrounds.
Aurora's parks feature splash pads, sports fields, skateboarding and a wide variety of other recreational activities.
" We have all experienced a moment when the simple act of leaving our home or workplace and getting outside has raised our spirits and cleared our mind. These emotional benefits also ring true for kids, with recent studies showing that when children are exposed to nature and the outdoors they are happier, have more energy, and are less anxious. Beyond the benefits to our mental health, spending more time outside is also associated with increased physical activity."
