KICK OFF YOUR SHOES, ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND HAVE SOME FUN IN THE SANDBOX!
To mark the 150th birthday of Ontario and Canada, we’re building a 150-foot pop-up sandbox on Sparks Street to raise awareness of Canadian issues in child and youth health.
Along with children from across Ottawa, The Sandbox Project is inviting Parliamentarians, kids’ health organizations, corporate Canada and media to join us for an informal midday sandcastle competition.
Who on the Hill will build the best sandcastle?

About the World's Largest Sandbox
Canada’s leaders are playing in the sandbox to build a healthier generation of Canadians. Every year, Parliamentarians, media personalities, NGO’s, families and industry professionals meet over a lunch hour in the World's Largest Sandbox on Ottawa's Sparks Street Mall. Together, we build sandcastles and raise awareness about the importance of collaboration towards improving child and youth health in Canada. Read about the 2016 World's Largest Sandbox here.
