Community Day

Come down to Ambleside Park for Community Day on Saturday, June 3, 2017, and enjoy a fun-filled day of festivities for the whole family!

This annual event has activities for all ages including a parade, music & dance stages, food vendors, a kid’s zone and a community day lounge.

This year's theme is We Are All Canadian, so if you're planning on participating in the parade–get creative!

Ride your bike to the event and enjoy free, safe bicycle parking, courtesy of The Bicycle Valet! The bike valet will be at the entrance to Ambleside Park (adjacent to the sailing club).
