Regular activities


There are three small-group campfire locations, but only two are in use in any given season – centre path and rinkside in winter. The centre path fire circle is in the middle of the park. The park’s recreation staff book the cooking fire times. There is an orientation and fire safety session for first-time users, and staff are available to help start/end your fire.

Garden Drop In Time: Sunday, April 20, 2 - 4 pm. Snacks Provided.

We'll be moving outside to clean up the garden beds this Easter Sunday. Our perennial beds are in need of tidying to allow the new shoots to push through after our very long and cold winter. Rachel Weston will be joining us and she'll be able to help identify the native plants and perennials in the beds around the park. The indoor seeding is mostly done and the tomatoes and herbs are sprouting nicely on the window sills of the rink house. Looking ahead, we might give some native flowers a head start if time permits and the compost bins are in dire need of revamping too.
