The Activation team hosts many events across different demographics. The Youth in Parksinitiative was started in 2015 when a gap was identified in events that were provided to engage youth in the community.

“We designed the Youth in Parks programme based on popular activities and ideas collected from local intermediate and college students,” explains Activation’s Recreation Advisor, David King.
