Of these outdoor gems, 12 are located RIGHT HERE in the FRASER VALLEY!!!
All summer long (every Friday), we’re going to be shining a big spotlight on these local parks (If you haven’t yet, make sure to sign up to our newsletter so you don’t miss a beat).
Despite growing up here in ‘the Valley,’ I’ll admit that I’ve only ever visited around half on the list. I can’t wait to check them all out this summer.
Aside from getting some fresh air and exercise, Metro Vancouver is offering another incentive to get families out at these parks. Their parks department is running a photo contest until August with the purpose of creating awareness about our local parks, and nurturing an appreciation for nature.
ValleyMom.ca is thrilled to be one of the official media sponsors of this exciting contest.
