DATE & TIME
West Village’s new parkland – The Common on Boundary Street, West End – is set to open a dedicated children’s sensory garden, including its very own chicken coop! To celebrate the opening of the sensory garden, West Village in conjunction with CitySmart is launching West Village Eco Kids – a series of green workshops for children of all ages. The workshops will run for 3 weeks (weekdays from 9am – 10am) with a different activity on each day of the week. Best of all, all the workshops are completely FREE! However, registration is essential and ticket numbers are limited. Secure your spot at the link below:
