Kids at Play

Summer is soon coming to an end and school will be back in session. What better way to say good-bye to the warm summer months than to soak up the outdoors with the range of parks and playgrounds in the city, indoor and outdoor games for children to play, and a variety of local outdoor recreation experiences that will bring joy to all.
