If you have kids home for Winter Break and you’re anything like me, they might be driving you nuts. After several days of Christmas fun, enjoying their new toys and games, I can tell that some energy needs to burn! What better place to get some fresh air than Wakamow Valley.
Growing up in Moose Jaw, Wakamow was always like a giant playground. My friend Brad and I would take off for hours on our bikes exploring and playing. I have some really great memories there. Now I get to see my children make their own memories in this wonderful park.
With winter fully set in, don’t cross Wakamow off your list of places to visit. Bundle up and enjoy what it has to offer during this time of year. You can snow shoe and cross-country ski, skate at the oval or explore the well-groomed trails. Keep your eyes open for the bird feeders and all the winter birds that enjoy them!
Wakamow Valley Authority has some great events coming up for the family to enjoy. First up is Winter Wagon Rides. From 3 pm to 7 pm on New Years Eve you can head down to the Kiwanis River Park Pavilion for hot chocolate and horse drawn wagon rides. This is a free event but a donation for the horses is much appreciated.
Winterfest is set for February 16th from 11 am to 3 pm. It is another free family event packed with lots to do. There will be crafts and wagon rides, a hot lunch concession and the oval to skate on.
Don’t worry parents, the kids will be back to school in no time and life will slide back into routine but in the mean time, take them down to Wakamow and make some memories of your own!
See you around,
