Are you looking for something to do with the kids this BC Family Day—Monday, Feb. 12?
Port Alberni’s Parks, Recreation and Heritage department has a plethora of activities offered, and they’re all free.
There are two ways for families to skate as part of the City of Port Alberni Parks, Recreation and Heritage Dept.’s Family Day festivities. Family rollerblading takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Glenwood Centre, with free admission and rentals.
A family skate on ice at the AV Multiplex is planned for 12–2 p.m., also with free admission and skate rentals.
The Alberni Valley Museum will hold a ‘Museum Discovery’ event from 3:30–5:30 p.m. on Family Day.
The afternoon will feature fun family activities. Check out the latest exhibit, ask about the museum scavenger hunt and learn a little about the history of the Alberni Valley as well.
The Alberni Aquarium and Stewardship Centre at Harbour Quay will also be open for Family Day, with half price admission. Dare to dip your fingers in the touch tanks and discover life below the water line. The aquarium will be open regular hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will also be holding a special Lego competition for Family Day.
Wrap up your Family Day fun with a family swim at Echo Pool from 6:30– 8 p.m. Admission is free. The evening is limited to 300 swimmers, but that leaves loads of room to have fun in either the baby pool or the big pool. Parents can relax in the hot tub or hang out on the sidelines, safely away from the splash zone.
