Downsview Park Nature Connection


Jun 23, 2019 to Jul 28, 2019


A FREE nature program for families. Connect with the natural world and come out to Downsview Park!

Downsview Park staff will take you on a free outdoor Park program based on nature-themed topics to get you exploring the natural world, starting with Downsview Park!

Using natural and human-made materials, participants will explore a naturalized area and engage in free-play. This program encourages imagination, exploration and group-play. Please note this program is unstructured and encourages a hands-off approach from adults. More information about the program will be sent to families after enrollment.

All participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. This program may take place on rough trails, strollers are not recommended. Please do not bring animals* to Nature Connection programs and remember to dress for the weather.

*Service animals are always welcome.
