The Playground: 3 Spring Things to Do This Week


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.

Forest Fairy Gathering

Saturday May 18th
Meet at the Burnaby Lake Nature House
11 am – 3 pm
Grab your wands and strap on some wings and head down to Burnaby Lake Regional Park.  Metro Vancouver is putting on a FREE Forest Fairy Gathering where families can explore the world of forest fairies and gnomes.  Spend the afternoon looking for flower fairies in the butterfly garden, visit the fairy market for building supplies to construct your very own fairy or gnome home and face painting.

As a part of the Environmental Extravaganza Event, learn about the little creatures that call Green Timbers Park home and see some amazing insects up close and take home a fun “bug” craft too. Rain or shine.  Registration is required, please call 604-502-6065.
