South Dundas Celebrates Parks & Recreation Month


South Dundas is celebrating Parks and Recreation Month with themed events at four parks. Last Wednesday, the celebrations kicked off in Haldane Park in Iroquois with a Pet Park Day. There, more than 60 kids were entertained by Zoo Crew, a new business in Iroquois. Organizing the park celebrations are South Dundas Recreation Director, Ben Macpherson and Fionna Carr, Family Resource Co-ordinator for the Ontario Early Years Centre. This past Monday, youngsters enjoyed a Teddy Bear Picnic at the Earl Baker Park in Morrisburg and today, Wednesday, June 13, the adventures continue at Riverside Heights with a Ball Park Day. Coming up on Monday, June 18, is a Bubble Day at the J.C. Whitteker Park in Williamsburg. Children of all ages are welcome. Carr and Macpherson were pleased with last Wednesday’s turnout and impressed with the interest and curiosity of the children…including the interest of 14 month old, Olivia Sypes, who is obviously delighted with Chili, a bearded dragon.
