“It’s always great to experience the fun learning opportunities available for families attending this annual event! There’s a lot to choose from – whether it’s live performances, games, interactive displays, or guided nature walks. It’s an amazing event that gets people thinking about our natural environment while having a fun summer afternoon in the park!” – Jason Kang
