A Busy Day at the Park! Check Out These Events on September 24!

Saturday September 24 will be a busy day at Withrow Park!

Start the day by celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Withrow Park Farmers Market.  The market is a lively part of our park community.  Come visit our table to say hello and take a few moments to check out the harvest festival and yummy food available every Saturday morning at the market. The market runs from 9 am to 1 pm rain or shine.  Visit http://www.withrowpark.ca/ for details.  

The afternoon will be filled with family fun at the park with the  Kaleidoscope Kids Festival- a family fundraising event for the Broadview Community Youth Group.  The festival will run from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will feature art and entertainment put on for kids and by kids, including workshops, live entertainment, activities, vendors and food.  There will be performances by kids followed by a headline performance by The Monkey Bunch.

See you at the Withrow Park!

Adopt a Tree!

Adopt Tree in Withrow Park

You may have noticed that we have a whole lot of new trees in the park.  Once the last instalment of the planting is done in the spring the park will have received about 100 new trees!  As you likely know, new trees need some tender loving care and water.  The trees are being looked after for the remainder of this season but in the spring we will be looking for volunteers to adopt a tree(s) to take care of and make sure it survives and thrives.  If you are interested in adopting a tree(s) please contact us at withrowtrees@sympatico.ca and we will add you to our growing list of tree adopters.  As we get closer to the spring we will be assigning trees and we will give you basic instructions for tree care.

A Big Thank You to Bret and Rockwell Stoneworks!

Have you walked by our new campfire pit yet?  We were lucky enough to have our campfire pit donated and built by Bret of Rockwellstoneworks (rockwellstoneworks@gmail.com).  A big thank you to Bret for  taking the time to build this campfire pit over the long weekend and donating all of the materials.  We will be sure to enjoy it!

What a fun evening at our park!  We have a beautiful new campfire pit (thanks to the help of our dedicated recreationist, Ronda Murphy) and the weather held off so that we could celebrate this new addition to our park.  Marshmallows, bannock and campfire songs (thanks to Pepper who led the singing)...it was a great way to celebrate Labour Day weekend and begin our Withrow Park campfire tradition.

We plan to have more campfires in the near future.  Stay tuned...
