Mount Pleasant Playgrounds

City living means many of us forgo having our own backyards. But urban living also means beautiful parks dot our neighbourhoods making fresh air, outdoor play (and a hot latte) easy to find. Here’s a rundown of a few standouts in the Mount Pleasant hood.

This week’s Mom to Follow is Vancouver mom Manda Aufochs Gillespie, a consultant, writer, environmentalist, mother, and the author of Green Mama: Giving your child a healthy start and a greener future. In her 20 years as an ecological designer, she has worked to green institutions and families all around the world and has been dubbed the “green guru” by the media, appearing on HBO, ABC, and CBC.

Playdate for Playgrounds

With steep budget cuts diminishing educational and recreational programs for Vancouver’s kids, three Vancouver based entrepreneurs have partnered up to raise much needed funds for Champlain Heights Elementary School to help them buy a new playground. The fundraising event is a collaboration between Jump Gymnastics, Klik Photographic and Collage Collage, local businesses that deal directly with kids everyday.
