Play Rangers

Play Rangers is an award-winning program that encourages children to get outside, play in parks, enjoy open spaces and engage in free-play. 

The Play Rangers travel throughout Chatham-Kent with their CK Rec Trailer full of your favourite games, toys, and equipment to promote unstructured free play. 

Offered for children of all ages and completely free of charge. Play Rangers turn a park or community space into a fun and engaging place that promotes physical activity, spending time as a family and the development of essential physical literacy.
