Game chest

The "Play to Play" chest, also known as a spontaneous game chest is quite simply a large chest available 12 hours a day, year-round. What might you find in that chest?

"Hoops, balls, cones, Frisbees, 4-season pails and shovels, hockey sticks, crazy carpets…in short, all types of games and accessories youngsters like and can use on their own or in groups."Quotation translated from: WixxMag. "The Play to Play chest: an inexpensive, high-impact tool for getting people moving!" Published March 19, 2015

Several towns throughout Québec have already fallen into step with the practice of free play in parks by providing their residents with this type of box/chest fostering spontaneous activity. This is an innovative idea allowing everyone to play different games without worrying about having the equipment required and carrying it to the park. In our case, this is an RCM project that seeks to replace the 0-5-30 health squad. The 7 towns have agreed to use the same logo on their chest, as well as invest in its development.

Rules for the use of the chest

This chest is made available to all citizens, of all ages to encourage spontaneous physical activity.

  • Equipment contained in this chest can only be used in the park to which it has been assigned.
  • This equipment can be borrowed by anyone making proper use of it, and must be returned to the chest when it is no longer needed, to allow others to benefit from it.
  • No deliberate damage to the equipment will be tolerated. It is important to make careful use of this equipment, allowing it to last for several years.
  • The chest will be locked by a park supervisor at closing time and unlocked upon arrival in the morning.

** Rules to which users of the chest must comply are posted near the chest, which will be secured to the ground.
