Caitlyn, Clemens Mill | May 1, 2017

Come out and play! In celebration of the new community park outside of the Clemens Mill location, we are launching a special new ‘Active Living’ collection of outdoor sports and games equipment!

From basketballs to yoga mats to chess sets, we’ve got an exciting range of outdoor equipment and games that individuals, friends, and families can enjoy. These items can be checked out in-person for 2 hours with an Idea Exchange library card beginning Wednesday May 31.

Join us for the Grand Opening of the community park on Tuesday May 30, 2017, beginning at 11:45am, which will feature entertainment and activities throughout the day. With support from St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School, the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation, and the Aviva Community Fund, we have seen the installation of a basketball court, fitness stations, rock-climbing walls, outdoor chess tables, a gazebo, and a story garden. With a large grass field and multi-lane track, this community park and the warm spring weather, our “Active Living Centre,” is quickly becoming a favourite destination.

Get outdoors, be active, and have fun!
