Celebrating Heritage Week!
Having Fun with Heritage: Historic Places Made for Play
Heritage Canada The National Trust promotes the third Monday of February each year as Heritage Day and has long advocated adopting this date as a national holiday.
For February 17, 2014, HCNT encourages Canadians to Have Fun with Heritage by celebrating Historic Places Made for Play.
No matter the season, children have always been drawn to the outdoors to play. And many places designed for play have a long history and treasured place in our hearts and our communities: traditional athletic fields, playgrounds, boardwalks and beaches, fairgrounds, parkland, wading pools and outdoor rinks are where childhood memories are made. Their equipment and fixtures may have changed over time, but their value remains rooted in place, where experiences are shared and a sense of belonging created.
For the young, and the young at heart, historic places made for play are all around us and ready to be enjoyed.
Stay tuned for the release of our 2014 Heritage Day poster!
