Family Day at Chinguacousy Park
Everything You Need for a Day of Family Fun
Family Day celebrates the importance of families in our community. Spend time with those you love at Chinguacousy Park on Monday, February 20 between 10 am and 4 pm. A fun -filled day has been planned with activities and entertainment throughout the park, including the new skating trail and Mount Chinguacousy.
This year's theme builds on Canada's 150th Anniversary celebration. Classic winter activities like skating, tubing, skiing and snowboarding will continue to be highlight attractions for visitors (weather permitting). Adding to the fun will be Mountie and hockey player stilt walkers, interactive ice sculpting, jugglers on and off the ice, a photo booth, inflatable games and wagon rides.
And that's not all. A wide variety programs will also be available at recreation centres across the City. For a complete listing of Family Day activities offered at your neighbourhood community centre, visit our Family Day events page. [more...]
