What we've been up to:
- The implementation of the Active Community Plan has led to the creation of a designated route system for travel to and from school - and some students utilize our trail system. Investigating adding sidewalks in the future to simplify the routes.
- Added disc golf course in Central Park, as well as a parent and tot program at the Evergreen Centre and the pool.
- After the success of the community's recreational lacrosse program in 2018-2019, Nipawin is starting a youth lacrosse program and hope to have league play next season.
- February break (2019) programming for the kids was very successful and had them participating in a mini-sticks tournament, movie nights and a dance party. In 2020, they may include an open organized shinny and other on-ice games at the arena, and possibly a dodgeball tournament.
- Cross country ski packages and snowshoes are available for use on their well-maintained, beautiful ski trails.
