Family Storytime returns!

24 Apr

IMG_1306Friends of Berczy Park is thrilled to welcome back our great librarians from the Toronto Public Library, St Lawrence Branch, for the annual Family Storytime in Berczy Park.

Enjoy this great free activity for children age 5 and under, with their parents or caregivers. Join us in the Berczy Park green space (near Scott & Front St E.) each Thursday in June at 3pm (June 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29) for stories, songs and rhymes to encourage a lifelong love of reading.

BYOB: Bring Your Own Blanket!

165794702Friends of Berczy Park invites all pet-owners and their furry companions to a series of spring- and summer-time social events in Berczy Park.

Stop by the park for free coffee from Tim Hortons and pet treats from PetValu. And, register for great raffle prizes, including gourmet pet cookies from Northern Biscuit Bakery, and deluxe pet bath and nail trim gift certificates from Park9!

BTW: Got old pet toys, clothes or supplies you don’t need? Bring them to our event and we’ll donate them to Project Jessie, a rescue and adoption program run by the Animal Alliance of Canada.

So, look for our table in the mural garden/pea gravel on-leash pet area, behind the Flatiron Bldg.
