VM Mom to Follow: Kate Isaac of BoredBox


This week’s VM Mom to Follow is Kate Isaac, an Australian-born Canadian who’s lived in Vancouver for the past ten years. She and her partner Aaron and their three-year-old son call the south east end of False Creek home. Kate is one of the co-founders of BoredBox, a portable, fully self-contained, screen-free activity centre for kids, which just launched on Indiegogo.

By day, Kate also works as an actor and is currently finishing up a series and a film, both shooting locally. She loves taking long walks through the neighbourhood with her two guys, great coffee (because parenting!) and is just a tiny bit (okay, completely) addicted to the written word.

This place is heaven. Coffee to die for, great sundry items if you’re in a pinch and snacks to please Mama, Papa and babe. Very family friendly.

This is a great little park that has been built amongst the existing landscape. A meandering pond with a family of ducks and beavers, water play, climbing equipment, right off the seawall. Happy babe, happy parents.

AquaBus / False Creek Ferries

Who doesn’t love a boat ride? Jumping on one of these little ferries from Olympic Village and heading over to Yaletown or Granville Island, then strolling home… LOVE. Family favourite.

Playground at Coopers Park under Cambie Bridge north

This is an older playground with all the traditional play equipment. Our son loooves it – and the best part, it’s protected year round, so take that Vancouver winter! Super close to Yaletown proper, so coffee and snacks are easily accessible too.

This is right in our neighbourhood and a great quick-visit for my guy and I. We love sitting at the bar and having a cocktail or booking a table and sitting down for a delicious meal.
