Park Playdates 2018!

Park Playdates (PPD) is a Wellness Centre gathering that takes place Friday mornings from May to September in a variety of park locations around the city.

Shelley Dupuis is our volunteer Park Playdate Coordinator for the summer of 2018. As such she has been recruiting volunteer parent hosts, coordinating the PPD schedule, ensuring the information is made public via Facebook and Toddler Talk e-letters. YOU can become a volunteer PPD host by contacting Shelley and choosing a convenient date and park. The job is simple … just be on-site to greet the other families on your chosen date. It’s an easy way to stay connected with other English-speaking families all summer long and a great opportunity to let the kids roam freely in the great outdoors! 

The Wellness Centre would like to thank Maria Elena de la Torre and Carrie Anna McGinn for hosting the last two Park Playdates.  Without volunteer power there would be no Park Playdates. Thanks to all our parent volunteers for making our community a better place!

Our next  gathering in the park is happening : Friday, August 10  starting at 10 am. 

Location: Parc Jean-Roger-Durand  (Wendake/Loretteville)  

It is not a large park so it shouldn’t be hard finding each other.  There is a splash pad.  There is also a large covered gazebo which is nice if it’s hot or it begins to rain.  There are also some beautiful waterfalls just a 2 min walk from the park! There is parking lot right across the street from the park.

Hostess:  Danielle Blondin

If it rains we can meet at La Parent-Aise. 1950 rue de l’interlude Val Belair.  It is a cafe with a play area geared towards families with young children.  (They do not have a website, only a facebook page)
