PRC staff and the 2022 PoP volunteer committee members are very pleased to announce we are holding our Power of Play event this year on Saturday June 18 at Strathcona Park in Sandy Hill.

Families from all over Ottawa have been invited to enjoy a fun StoryWalk® with a themed play/activity area, creating art in the park, two super fun Selfie Stations, Farm Hopper race track, music & instruments to make your own music while bubbles float around, oversized games to play (Jenga, Checkers and Connect4), Giant Soccer ball, Giant Beach Ball, Parachute Games, yummy snacks, and much more.

Playtime, especially with family is our priority and is an essential building block of childhood. Play is a critical component of getting back to our lives after lockdowns and restrictions. It allows children to practice what they are learning and for parents and children to spend quality time reinforcing their bond. PRC is thrilled to provide an opportunity to bring families together to connect, explore and learn.  We hope you will consider joining us.

Regards, 2022 PoP Planning Committee
