Pop-ups in the Park

Our “pop up” programs provide an informal, welcoming environment for families/caregivers with children from the age of 0-6.

The groups take place in different locations as either a one-time event or on a time-limited basis. You do not need to register nor is there a cost to attend.

Some of the activities and resources available are:

  • simple art activities
  • books and story time
  • circle time activities such as songs, rhymes and basic movements
  • information on community resources via the Valley Child website
  • information on child development and behaviour issues

For upcoming dates for this program, please visit the Event page on

For the summer:
