It's Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Summer

Back in August, we wrote about an upcoming children's nature park opening in Pemberton. Well, just in time for spring, the playground is getting another boost, thanks to the Rotary Club of Pemberton.

New Pemberton Children's Park

The second phase of the Pemberton and District Community Centre's Children's Nature Play Park is springing up right on schedule. The grass maze is now a year old, and right beside it will now stand a 900 square foot interlocking brick viewing patio.

Thanks to numerous volunteers and local government staff, the work will be completed by May 9th.

This nature park will complement the already busy water park, and offer a shady respite for all ages. The lifestyle the nature park promotes is one that Pemberton already possesses, so it's wonderful to see this addition in our village.

In this phase of the park development, the three parks: water spray park, nature park and the future sand play area are all connected with a concrete anchor.

Extension to Cottonwood 

Future plans include extending the nature play park all the way to Cottonwood Street Community Centre and turning the traditional park playground equipment into tee-pee forts, reading nooks, tractor tires, sandbox, water feature, logs and balancing stumps.  

Because of recent evidence that today's children are not spending enough time in nature, parks like the Pemberton nature play park are springing up everywhere. The idea is to provide an accessible place for children to explore nature. Time in nature is proven to help with depression, attention deficit disorder, obesity and more.

Connecting with Nature in Pemberton

Connecting with nature can help with all the adverse effects from time spent indoors and with technology and is a key part in growing children's development.

Time in nature improves our mood, helps with concentration and memory and keeps kids active, too. We look forward to seeing our latest Pemberton park expand and grow (literally) this summer.

Whistler Alternative

When visiting Whistler, consider staying at Pemberton Valley Lodge. We offer several advantages over Whistler hotels…

 1  Only 20 minutes

You can get to the Village faster from our Lodge than you can from some parts of Whistler Resort.

 2  Save money

Whistler hotels typically charge for parking. We don't. And you get bigger rooms for your dollar.

 3  Ski shuttle

Our complimentary shuttle bus runs daily from the Lodge to and from Whistler Blackcomb.
