Families and children aged 12 years and under in the City of Rockingham are encouraged to head outdoors during the school holidays and get involved in the Rockingham Summer Parks Challenge throughout January 2020. 

The Rockingham Summer Parks Challenge gives children and their families the chance to explore selected parks across the City, answer checkpoint questions and complete outdoor challenges for the chance to win a prize.
