The Municipality of Port Hope is proud to be designated as a Platinum Youth Friendly Community through the Playworks Partnership, actively supporting and providing opportunities for the growth and development of our Youth (ages 13 - 19) through play.
A Youth Friendly Community encourages play for youth in their community. Play is any non-school activity that has elements of choice, leads to satisfaction, and encourages progressive learning and enjoyment. Activities can include - but are not limited to recreation, sport, leisure, arts, drama, dance, civic engagement, youth activism, volunteerism, social clubs and youth leadership.
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture recognizes and appreciates the many community partners it works with to create opportunities for youth play.
