We invite you to participate in a wide variety of activities to make the day even more fun and to help make our parks even better!

Tree Tour at 6 with Jennifer and Dana.

Tree pruning at 7 with Zack.

Adopt one of the 8 new saplings, still needing someone to care for it.

Help other adopters to mulch and fertilize their trees.

Come out and see the latest plans for the brick building renovation and pathway paving project and learn more about our WaterHarvest ambitions.

If you like your coffee or need a T-shirt, we will have both for sale – 100% of proceeds going towards improvements and programs in Fred Hamilton and George Ben Parks, and Roxton Road Parkette.

Hope to see you there!
