There is also an opportunity to join us for our Monstrous Adventure Playground on Saturday, September 16 at Shaw Millennium Park (1220 9 Ave. S.W.) from noon to 4 p.m. The playground will be a dynamic space where children can explore, create, imagine and learn in their own way. It will be messy, dirty, chaotic, unconstructed, unstructured, unlimited, unadult and fun. To our children, it will look like paradise with endless possibilities! We would like to include children from local schools to come and unleash the Power of Play! For more information please visit www.canada2017.ipaworld.org. See you in September!
