The Play, Walk and Roll in Lisgar Neighbourhood project is about understanding how children in the Lisgar neighbourhood are active in the outdoors, whether it’s walking or cycle to school, or playing in and around their neighbourhoods outside of school hours. The results of the project will provide parents of school-aged children with outdoor play activity ideas and routes to school. The goal of the project is to encourage kids to be more active and to power off their electronic devices and get outside!
As part of the project, parent/guardians of a student at St. Anthony Daniel Catholic Elementary School and Lisgar Elementary School, were asked about if and how their child/children play in the community, and if/where they walk or wheel to school. 64 responses were received. This website summarizes the results.
Play, Walk and Roll in Lisgar Neighbourhood is part of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge (HKCC) program funded by the Province of Ontario. The project is a partnership between Civicplan and the City of Hamilton, Healthy and Safe Communities, Public Health Services. We are working with the two elementary schools in the Lisgar neighbourhood to learn more about how students walk and roll to school as well as where and how they play in their neighbourhood.
