No worries, our rink is now open! It was closed up until recently because of unusually warm weather (?!) I think some of us wouild beg to differ ;-) Anyhoo, it stays cold, it stay open. Happy skating, be nice and share the ice!
Park People have issued some excellent tool kits that explains the how-to put on events in your park and/or how to initiate community building fun! They are excellent resources. The link to their website is below failing that, pdf's of handbooks below.
Thank you for all that contributed to our 2nd Annual Pumpkin Parade. Some amazingly, creative works! Thank you to the Lucky Penny, who donated some warm apple cider to enjoy whilst perusing the pumpkins. And thanks to the lucky few Sunday morning that came out to partake in the all time favorite, 'pumpkin-tossing-in-the-bin' activity Please post your own favorite photos on our facebook page.
One or two of you were concerned about the material put down on the park's playing fields on September 26.
Safe for babies, kids, dogs and the rest of us? Yes.
It was applied by the city staff responsible for caretaking the playing fields and it is 'pelletized' (sp?), aged chicken manure. It is safe, organic but of course will smell for a few days. Small price to pay.
