Burlington, Ont. — July 12, 2021 — Burlington residents can now borrow more play equipment from the City’s Lending Library program, located at Brant Hills Community Centre at 2255 Brant St. Thanks to a donation from Tim Hortons, the City was able to purchase more equipment, so now more families can play together, get outside and try new activities.
The play equipment is available to borrow for free (with a credit card deposit) for a one-week period. Equipment bookings can only be made online. Pick up and drop off is located at the east entrance, through Duncaster Drive. All items are disinfected between each use.
“Access to recreational equipment can be a barrier for many people, so thanks to this program and the funding from Tim Hortons, we can offer more great equipment to even more people, so they can get outside and play. There is a wide range of equipment available, from small games that can be played in your backyard to larger activities that require some of our wonderful open, green spaces in our parks. We encourage you to check out what is available and to consider trying something new.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation, Community & Culture, City of Burlington
