Park-ticipate

The City of Ottawa runs a free program in the summer called Park-ticipate. For about an hour, city staff come to local parks to entertain the kids. We had never been but we will definitely be back before the summer is done!

The theme on the day we went was space and the kids got to make crafts, play games, and read books all about space. There was a range of ages of kids there, and the two girls running the program were great at getting everyone to participate and have fun.

I got to sit in the shade at a picnic table and chat with the other parents. It was magical.

Have you heard of the program? Here's the Park-ticipate website.. check to see if they come to a park near you! (Though you need to be home during the day....)
