The Town of Aurora is introducing a Play in the Park series – a variety of recreation focused workshops for tots, children and youth to experience the benefits of recreation in a safe environment. Each outdoor play workshop is 45 minutes in duration and provides an opportunity for participants to socialize, spend time outdoors, and safely play amongst their peers. Staff will facilitate group interaction through a variety of recreation focused games and activities that encourage play and can be done while maintaining physical distancing. 

All workshops will take place outdoors at Lambert Willson Park. Please park in the north parking lot of the Aurora Family Leisure Complex (rear side of the building). Note - There is no access to the Aurora Family Leisure Complex at this time. 

Workshops offered specifically for preschool and children ages 3 to 12 require a parent/guardian to either participate alongside them (3 to 5 years) or remain onsite at all times and in close proximity (6 to 12 years).

Pre-Registration is Required

Participants must pre-register and pay online ahead of time to reserve a spot. Pre-registration for September workshops opens on August 31, 2020.
