Help us celebrate National Child Day

Please join us in celebrating National Child Day and this year’s theme of: it’s our right to play. Every year Canada and nations around the world take time to acknowledge and support children and their right to be active participants in their own lives.

On Nov. 20 we are hosting the following activities for children and families:
  • Free play areas at local leisure and recreation centres
  • An art’s exhibition at Wildflower Arts Centre
  • Fun and games at Devonian Gardens
On Nov. 22  we are hosting Calgary Play Day with the following activities for children and families:
  • Free swimming and skating for children 12 and under during designated public hours at city-operated recreation facilities
  • More fun and games at Devonian Gardens
  • A carnival at Connaught School (1121 12th Ave. S.W.)
Play is an important of a child’s day. It helps kids develop attributes such as creativity, imagination, self confidence, physical, social, cognitive and emotional skills.
