The North BurLINKton Planning Team has been very busy planning a summer FULL of activity!
We are calling it the “Pop Up Summer” because you will be able to find North BurLINKton summer staff, volunteers and partners popping up around about our neighbourhoods with fun activities all summer long! There will be our regular Chill Zone sites in addition to Pop Up Play Sites, Pop Up Gardens, Teens events, two 55+ lunches and a two Women’s Events and maybe a few other special events thrown in for good measure! Chill Zone is a two hour drop-in Program for elementary school aged children. Activities include crafts and games and special theme based activities. There is no cost for the program. See the schedule for days and locations. Pop Up Gardens are small raised beds that are being planted in three locations in the North Burlington areas:
- Walkers Field (2300 Walkers Line),
- Tansley Untied Church (2111 Walkers Line),
- Calvary Baptist Church ( 2458 St. Frances Dr.)
The food is grown by local community children and adults and is being shared with all that pass by. Stay tuned for pictures! Dinner Night Out continues through the summer on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month as usual. Dinner Night out takes place between 6 and 8 pm at Glad Tidings Church. Pop Up Play Sites are happening in a variety of City of Burlington Parks. Come meet us at the park and meet Chill Zone staff and volunteers, Burlington Public Library staff, and Halton Regional Police Officers. We will have some crazy summer fun for you and information about what is happening around the City! See below for the schedule so you can find us!
