Sunday, November 3, 2013 Geocaching at Belcarra Regional Park.
Try your hand at geocaching, an outdoor recreational activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches". No experience necessary!


 
 

Sunday, October 6, 2013 at Nature Walk and Creative Cafe at Minnekhada Park
Join us as we take an easy walk through Minnekhada Regional Park and end up at the Creative Cafe. The Creative Cafe involves fun, creative activities hosted by the Minnekhada Park Association.
 
Sunday, July 7 at Belcarra Regional Park.
Be a park steward and help remove ivy (an invasive species) at Belcarra Regional Park! This event is hosted by Metro Vancouver Parks and the Lower Mainland Green Team.
The event runs from 9:45-1 however I wouldn't expect younger members to enjoy participating for that long. (I would expect mine to last an hour at the most). However, there is a wonderful beach to explore, an extensive trail system and a playground at the picnic area. Bring a picnic lunch and stay to enjoy the park for a while!
