The Playground: Playland Opens this Weekend!


Welcome to The Playground, a place for Vancouver families. I’m always on the lookout for fun stuff to do, so if there’s something happening that you think I should know about, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Looking for something to do this sunny weekend?  Playland opens tomorrow, May 4th for the 2013 season (weekends only from 10am – 6pm).  A day at Playland can be a pretty affordable family outing.  Toddlers are free and parents can purchase a “guardian pass” (limit two per child under 12) for $18.50.  More info on admissions can be found here.

Our favourites include trying to spot our house from the top of the Ferris Wheel, the glittery motorcycles  and the happiest helicopters in town.   Check out a full list of kid friendly rides here along with height restrictions. There are also two new family rides this year:  Teacups and Balloon Explorers! I know Sadie will be eager to try those.   One ride that she is less eager to revisit is the Kettle  Creek Roller Coaster:
