Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

Desired Outcomes

Remember when you were a kid and how it felt to spend days with friends and family at the park. The excitement you felt driving over the bumpy road, knowing the playground was just ahead............... Let's bring that joy to our children.

As a Recreation Committee and Town Council we are striving to meet the following goals:
- To create a social hub where all residents of Hare Bay can connect.
- To restore pride and ownership in our community by bringing everyone together to achieve a common goal thereby developing a more united community empowered to create positive change.
- To provide our youth with opportunities that will foster positive self-growth and leadership skills, encouraging them to take an active role in their community.
- To enhance the lives of our children by creating a safe and sustainable play area that will promote physical and social activity for the children and their families.
- Networking with local businesses and organizations to increase support and participation thus allowing us to develop future projects.

Thanks To You . . . . . . WE DID IT.

I know you've heard the expression "A picture is worth a thousand words", well here are our one thousand words, along with two more ........... Thank You.


  1. It was a great experience, amazing to see it all come together!

  2. We can't thank you enough for a wonderful, inspiring event. To the volunteers, workers, donations, and especially to Sue Collins for orchestrating such a mega project. The tears were real and heartfelt appreciation to all who participated in any way. Our sister, Beverly Forward would have been over the moon with awe at having a playground named in her honor. To see the show of hands of all the people she touched in her many years as a teacher in Hare Bay and as a resident in Gambo. From the balloons, to the lunch provided, the hard-working and cold!! volunteers, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Let's hope the Beverly Forward Sunshine Park and the Hare Bay Memorial Park will live on for generations to come. Thank you again....Susan Skinner (Forward, Mary Jeans (Forward) and Judy Forward
