This weekend is going to be a beautiful one. Why not try one of these routes to and from Wesbrook Village.
Pacific Spirit Park
The gorgeous and huge Pacific Spirit Park is a logical destination for a walk from Wesbrook Village. On a hot day, those great big trees make for a naturally cool and green playground. Grab a juice from Jugo Juice in the village before you set out.
On Saturdays, you can combine a romp around the farm with the weekly farmers market. Check out the beehives, marvel at the incredible number of apple varieties, and check out the children’s garden. Start your Saturday at the Wesbrook Village Welcome Centre for story time, and then after your farm visit, grab some frozen yoghurt at Menchie’s.
Beatty Biodiversity Museum
In the sunshine, a walk doesn’t feel so far. Get brunch at Bier Craft, and then walk over to the Beatty Biodiversity Museum. It’s about a half an hour walk, but sometimes a postprandial stroll is exactly what you need after brunch.
Walk and talk
Take a break from the kids and meet some new adults. I know right? Other adults! Join the weekly walk and talk group in front of the Running Room, and experience a new route every time. Meet new people, have a nice chat, and get some exercise at the same time.
