Year Round Green Shack Program

Free Drop-In Program in Local Parks

This year, children and families across Edmonton will have the opportunity to keep summer going with the introduction of the Neighbourhoods Fall, Winter, and Spring Green Shack program.

The free, drop-in Green Shack will feature many of the same elements of the popular summer playground program, with trained leaders putting on a variety of sports, games, arts, crafts, nature activities and cooking aimed at children aged 6 – 12. Snacks will be provided at all programs.

Families are welcome to attend and will not want to miss out on the special Family Focus afternoons, held every three weeks. We ask that children 6 and under are supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.

Programs will be offered on two weekday afternoons from 4-7 pm and on one weekend afternoon from 1–5 pm for a minimum of four weeks. A different theme will be introduced every four weeks. More detailed activity plans will be posted on the side of the Green Shack.

The Green Shack will run snow or shine in neighbourhood playgrounds, with programs cancelled for severely inclement weather. In the event of poor weather, many programs will continue to run in an indoor space adjacent to the playground. We’re grateful to the community groups who have made facilities available.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the park this New Year!
