CENTRAL OKANAGAN - There’s something for every member of your family in the new Summer-Fall edition of ‘Your Guide to Regional Parks’.
From the popular ‘Summer Nature Camps’ to ‘Park Fun Zones in Lake Country’ to ‘Going Wild at the EECO’…the guide contains everything you need to know about activities, events and programs in our Regional Parks for the rest of the year.
It’s available anytime online by visiting regionaldistrict.com/parksguide. Or you can pick up a copy at the Regional District office (1450 KLO Road), the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan in Mission Creek Regional Park (Springfield and Durnin Roads) and at any local government office, recreation centre or tourist and information office in the Central Okanagan.
Communications Officer Bruce Smith says “The handy ‘Year at a Glance’ provides a month by month listing of programs and activities at the EECO located in Mission Creek Regional Park and in many of the Central Okanagan’s 31 other Regional Parks. There’s also a colour map showing Regional Park locations and some of the features and amenities that are available in each.”
He says “Starting June 23rd we’re introducing a new weekly program through late July called ‘Roll and Stroll’. It’s a free walking club for moms and caregivers with babies or little ones so that they can meet others and spend some time outdoors in a family and baby-friendly environment. And during July and August we also have our free, drop-in ‘Summer Story Time’ each week in Mission Creek and Gellatly Nut Farm regional parks.”
Smith adds, “Parents of youngsters age three to 10 may want to check out the dates, times and registration information for this year’s ‘Summer Nature Camp’ program which takes place mornings during July and August in Mission Creek and Bertram Creek regional parks. Registration for the program begins June 1st and spaces fill up quickly!”
The guide also has the details for our guided ‘Take a Hike’ program with barrier-free access provided by our Community Recreational Initiatives Society (CRIS) partners.
