Enjoy nature and a story with our StoryWalk®. Visit us at Lake Ontario Park to read Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman's Bear Counts.  The book features easy-to-read, rhyming text and encourages kids to count along with bear as he notices animals and objects around him in nature.  Following that, use our special bubble wands to blow and count big bubbles!

The event scheduled for this Saturday in Sharbot Lake has been cancelled due to extreme heat.
