VM Mom to Follow: Jaclyn Clarke and Mila Tam of Brave and Free Littles


This week’s Mom(s) to Follow are Jaclyn Clarke and Mila Tam, two sister in laws and co-creators of Brave and Free Littles, a new outdoor meet up group for parents and their kids, in particular the under 5 set (babies, toddlers and preschoolers). The meetup group is free and they will be exploring all of the great trails, parks and playgrounds that the Lower Mainland and Tri-Cities has to offer. They also created a hub on Instagram called Brave and Free Adventures that features outdoor locations around the world that are family friendly.

Jaclyn is a stay at home mom of two active boys ages 5 and 2. Jaclyn worked in the service industry for 6 years in management until having her first born. In her spare time you will find her hiking the local trails with her family or unwinding at Yoga at Kasia’s. Coffee keeps her going and sane.

Mila is a stay at home mom of a busy 20-month-old son. She is a nature enthusiast, a lover of chocolate and a Jill of all trades. Mila was a foreman in construction before pursuing a career as an RMT. Mila loves anything that stimulates creativity whether it be through music, art or building something.

Places They Love

SFU Bike Park, Burnaby Mountain

Our family loves this bike park so we are typically here every weekend. There is an intermediate area with dirt jumps for older kids and a smaller pump track where younger children can practice on their balance bikes. From here you can also access the many mountain biking trails that Burnaby Mountain has to offer. Starbucks is right around the corner if you need a caffeine kick.

Burnaby Central Railway, Confederation Park, Burnaby

Our kids are train lovers, so we come here often. You get to ride around on miniature trains with a conductor for 10-15 minutes. The train takes you through forested areas, over bridges and under tunnels. There are over 2 kms of tracks with many different routes, making each ride different and exciting. There are several types of trains you can ride, even a steam engine! Rides cost $3.50 per person.

Old Orchard Park, Port Moody

This is one of our favourite parks to visit. it is a great place to have picnics, play at the playground and let the kids explore along the water’s edge. Our favourite entry points are along the two beautiful paths leaving from Rocky Point Park that follow along the inlet.
