Get into the leaves!

This spectacular weather won’t last forever. Get everyone outside while it lasts and soak up these final rays of fall. Check out the colourful leaves at one of our gorgeous parks, take a beautiful fall family walk. And if your kids need something more structured, spend half a day at one of these super playgrounds!  If you’re on the North Shore, hit one of these playgrounds with a view.

Go on a ferry trip to Bowen Island

With this weather, a ferry ride to Bowen Island will be well worth the fare. And there’s tons to do there from a gorgeous walk around Killarney Lake to a teeny tiny candy store.

Go swimming

Granted the pool might be a mad house, but if you have an over 8-year-old, you don’t need to follow their every move. Head to the hot tub and decompress while the kids fly off the boards and float around the lazy river. Check out the new aquatic centre at UBC and cap it off with a freshly baked snack at Wesbrook Village’s Dough Girls. Noms!

Work while the kids bounce or play

Many places have parent lounges with WIFI and places to work. If your kids are old enough, they can bounce on the trampolines at APEX or play in their imaginary city at Kidtropolis while you work on your novel, blog post or spreadsheet.

Head to the Pumpkin Patch

If you haven’t been already — the weather has been stunning— expect it to be busy! Make sure your iPhone is juiced up and ready for some great snaps and head out for some harvest fun at one of the many pumpkin patches in the Lower Mainland.
