It Takes a Village

SavvyMom April 8, 2016

Whoever penned the proverb “it takes a village to raise a child” must have had Edgemont Village in mind—it’s the ideal place to spend a day (or more) with the kids.
Nestled near the base of Grouse Mountain, this neighborhood hub hums with the sound of little ones.

Start your day ordering up a picnic lunch at La Galleria Fine Foods, where the huge baguette sandwiches easily feed two kids! Or head to The Bakehouse for a rainbow bread grilled cheese and a Smartie cookie (great lunch and pies for grown ups, too). Now you can relax and wander.

Visit BC Playthings and pick up colorful pinwheels and balls for the park or sand toys for a day at the beach. At Kidsbooks in the Village, the cute window display will draw in the little ones and the amazing assortment of books, puzzles and games will keep them coming back. Or stop by the welcoming kids’ area at the library.
