REMINDER - Passport to Parks Begins!

27-Jun-2014

Passport to Parks or #P2PSJ, is your invitation to a fun and active summer in Saint John.  Our city boasts a vast array of municipal parks, from splash pads and skate parks to beaches, trails, and neighbourhood squares. Passport to Parks invites you to enjoy them all!

Over the first four weeks of summer, we've kicked it up a notch at 8 different park sites across the city. We've added face painting, a live DJ, healthy snacks, and games at each site, along with additional entertainment and activities that will make each park visit special.

So slap on the sunscreen, grab your lawn chairs, fill up your water bottles and head to the park for a fun and active  summer in Saint John!
