Beaverbrook’s Thursday Park Night
Since May 2013, Beaverbrook families have been meeting on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm for active play and social time for kids and parents. Spring, Summer and early Fall the group meets at Stephen Leacock playground or an alternative nearby playground. When the weather gets chilly the beginning of November we move indoors to the Beaverbrook Community Centre for a few months. Then once the ice is ready at Stephen Leacock in early January, the group enjoys the outdoor rink – skating and hot chocolate.
Families take turns bringing snack for the kids. The little ones enjoy playtime together at the playground, while the older kids often play baseball, or tag. Occasionally organized activities take place like “capture the flag – the kids like taking on the parents as their competition.
Details are posted weekly on the Beaverbrook Happenings Facebook page. This is a private group, but all families are welcome to join. It has proven to be a great way to connect families to other groups and activities taking place across Beaverbrook and Kanata.
