Take the Kids on a StoryWalk®!


Take a walk through the pages of a deconstructed children’s book and enjoy a wonderful story in the outdoors! Books change monthly – check back regularly for the next story!


StoryWalk is located along the front fence outside Walnut Park Elementary School on Mountainview Ave (behind A&W and Wash the Works).

Win your own copy of each month’s book!

To be entered into the prize draw, simply email us at [email protected] and let us know how many people (kids + adults) were in your StoryWalk group. Photos are welcome too (children’s faces should not be shown)!

Free activity kits to do at home!

When you get to the end of the story, head over to the Northwest Child Development Centre at 1471 Columbia Drive (9am-4pm, Monday-Friday) and pick up a FREE activity kit for the kids to do at home! There are new activities for each book.
