A Regal Road Trip

SavvyMom April 8, 2016

Feel like getting out of the five-mile quadrant your car usually drives around in (school, groceries, gym, work)?
Get off your grid with a really royal family daytrip to New Westminster. A city often overlooked for day tripping with kids, New West has lots to offer families all summer long, including plenty of green space, updated playground and pool facilities, and great places for family dining.

Top of our list is historical Queen’s Park. Established in 1859, Queen’s Park boasts two large and recently updated playgrounds (including one of the longest and steepest slides in all of Greater Vancouver), a large, fun, river-themed water park, a bandstand for Sunday afternoon concerts, and a small petting zoo. The Queen’s Park Petting Farm is open Victoria Day to Labour Day and is free of charge (take some loonies for the donation box at the exit). The entire children’s area at Queen’s Park is called Rainbow Playland and it includes wide-open grassy spaces, trails, picnic areas and a concession. While there, be sure to check out the beautiful rose garden—you may even catch a wedding in progress.
