Summer is finally here!  It does not need to cost you a lot of money to have fun with your family this summer. Visit Chatham-Kent Inter Urban Transit for transit fares and times.

Free movies in the park are presented in various parks throughout Chatham-Kent during the summer, as well as many opportunities for families to swim together for free!  Check out all the fun things Chatham-Kent has to offer at Chatham-Kent Recreation.

Chatham-Kent has more than 60 kms of multi-use trails. What a great way to get exercise through walking or biking outdoors with your family.  For an interactive map of local trails, visit Chatham-Kent Trails.

Stop by your Chatham-Kent Public Library to enjoy the fun programming offered there.  For more information visit Chatham-Kent Library.

Other activities to try this summer may include:  setting up a tent in your backyard and camping with your family, playing in a water sprinkler and backyard scavenger hunts.

Always remember your sunscreen and insect repellent on everyone over 6 months and keep your babies out of the sun and protected from bugs!!  ENJOY being outdoors with your family and have a fun and safe summer!!
