Tidal WAV  (pronounced “wave”) Outdoor Festival is a free public event offering practical suggestions to get children and adults outdoors more regularly.  Time spent outdoors positively impacts well-being, physical, intellectual, and social development, as well as environmental ethics and practices.

On Friday, June 3rd, 2022, come to enjoy what Stanley Park has to offer and free WAV outdoor activities hosted by WAV volunteers.   

Child and youth participation in the Tidal WAV 2022 Outdoor Festival requires direct parent / caregiver and/or teacher supervision.  Some activities may have a maximum group size and waiting list.     There will be a variety of educational activities to choose.
Stanley Park has many things for you to explore such as forest walks with the Forest Rangers, the Ceperley Park Playgrounds, Second Beach, the seawall, Lost Lagoon, the Blue Heron Rookery by the tennis courts, and many nature / picnic areas.
