The Healthy Kids Community Challenge is taking its next steps in the Town of Petawawa by hosting a community workshop, confirmed Kelly Williams, Parks and Recreation Manager.

It will focus on developing a natural play area in the municipality. These types of areas are designed to bring children back to nature and involves components such as logs, trees, sand and plants instead of traditional play structures. There are also often a few man-made structures added to the mix, but these are usually carefully integrated to keep the area as natural and wild as possible.

A date for this workshop has not been set, but will be announced within the next few weeks.
