Family Picnic In The Park

Metro-Vancouver families with children birth to nine years of age are invited to join us for a Community Discovery picnic in the park on Saturday August 6 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.

Bring a picnic lunch for your family, and join us at Queen’s Park in New Westminster to connect with other Blind Beginnings families. We’ll provide some fun activities for the kids, and parents will have a chance to network with each other and socialize against the beautiful backdrop of Queens Park.

Playland Outing
2901 E. Hastings Street, Vancouver
Thursday August 18, 2022 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM

We are very excited to announce the return of our annual Community Discovery outing to Playland on August 18th, 2022! The outing is open to any youth 10 years or older that are members of Blind Beginnings. Your admission to Playland and an All Day Ride Pass will be provided by Blind Beginnings. Be sure to bring a bag lunch or bring money to buy lunch.

Note: Children who would like to bring a parent or sibling are welcome to do so. We will cover the cost of one additional family member with each blind or partially sighted attendee.

We will split the group into two groups; those who like scary rides and those who prefer tame rides.  Please let us know your preference so we can plan volunteers accordingly.

We will meet outside the main gate at Playland at 11:00 am and will finish by 4:00 pm.

If you plan to travel to Playland with the group, we will travel on transit so please bring your bus pass or CNIB card if you have one.

Deadline to register for this outing is Tuesday August 9th.
