There are three small-group campfire locations, but only two are in use in any given season – centre path and rinkside in winter. The centre path fire circle is in the middle of the park. The park’s recreation staff book the cooking fire times. There is an orientation and fire safety session for first-time users, and staff are available to help start/end your fire.

Weather permitting in season. $2.50 per pizza is the requested donation.

Garden Drop In Time: Sunday, April 13, 2 - 4 pm
We've planted tomatoes, basil and parsley in the seeding trays and this Sunday we'll seed eggplant, peppers and onions. All these plants need a head start indoors before being planted out in the garden so that they'll reach maturity in our very short summers. We'll also head outside and start cleaning up the perennial beds, weather permitting, to help along the spring bulbs.
