Live 5-2-1-0 Playboxes are industrial metal jobsite boxes that are installed in community parks and contain equipment and ideas for active play. The boxes are wrapped with colourful vinyl graphics and secured with combination locks; the code to open a Playbox is freely accessible to families.
As part of developing a healthy community the City of Abbotsford has partnered with Fraser Health, Abbotsford Community Services, Pacific Sport, the Abbotsford News, the Abbotsford School District and the University of the Fraser Valley to install several of these boxes filled play equipment such as balls, jump ropes, hula hoops and more.
The City of Abbotsford believes in helping families raise healthy children. We know that children, who are raised in an environment where they are active, have better physical and emotional health, perform better academically, and have greater leadership skills.
Physical activity also lowers depression and crime rates while increasing productivity and innovation. As a community, we all want our kids to be healthy, to play, and to have fun but the reality is that there can be a number of challenges to making that happen:
Playboxes bring more fun and more opportunities for active play to our families, offer parents and caregivers new ideas on how to play with their kids, supply the necessary games and sports equipment, and provide unlimited access and opportunity for families to get outdoors and engage with other families through active play.
All you need to do to access all the fun stuff inside the box, is register below for a play box code and you will get the unlock code for the box for free.
We are aware of the risks of vandalism, theft or damage of the equipment and we decided that helping families get active was way too important not to try something like this.
The play boxes are at the following parks:
