New Summer-Fall Parks Guides are here

If you enjoy fun activities that take place in or are about Mother Nature then check out the new ‘Your Guide to Regional Parks’. There is something for kids, seniors, mom’s and dad’s…the whole family!

You’ll find detailed information about the programs and activities in our 12-page colour, foldout brochure 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), local government offices, recreation centres and tourist and information offices in the Central Okanagan.

Communications Officer Bruce Smith says “Parents of youngsters age three to eight 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 Regional Park. Registration for the program is underway and spaces fill up quickly!”

This year there are a few new programs like ‘Art in the Park’ at Kopje Regional Park Sunday mornings from June through August.

Smith adds, “We have our free, drop-in ‘Summer Story Time’ each week during July and August in Mission Creek Regional Park and free summer and fall ‘Roll and Stroll’ walking program for moms and caregivers with babies or little ones. It’s a great way for them to spend some time outdoors each week in a family and baby-friendly environment.” The guide also has the details for the ‘Wild Walks’ program which happens twice a month at seven different Regional Parks.

The handy 'At a Glance' is a monthly listing of programs and activities at the EECO located in Mission Creek Regional Park and in many Regional Parks. There’s also a colour map showing Regional Park locations and some of the features and amenities that are available in each.
