This Fall our Tuesday programs utilize the following East Edmonton parks: Capilano Park, Gold Bar Park, Rundle Park &/or Borden Park.
This year, we are running two sets of programs:-
– 5-week programs starting Tuesday, September 27
– 5-week programs starting Tuesday, November 1
Our Tuesday program runs from 6:00PM – 7:00PM – with a sliding start window (explained below).
This program is for participants 5 years and older. Kids in the 5 and 8 age are required to have a parent/guardian participating with them. Siblings under the age of 5 are welcome to participate for free with adult help. Parents/Grandparents are always encouraged to participate.
Our 5-week programs are $45

Our Fall programs will continue to utilize the ‘sliding start window’ allowing families to arrive & start anytime within a 45 minute time frame.
Example: Most of our Fall programs show a program time of 6:00PM – 7:00PM, families can arrive onsite from 5:45PM – 6:30PM. Equipment will start getting picked up approximately 50 minutes after the last family arrives allowing each family a minimum of one hour to complete activities.
Our programs continue to run family-focused, meaning that regardless of the participants age, parents are strongly encouraged to participate as well. This may mean that your family participates together OR could mean that your family completes different courses/activities at the same time, utilizing the same park space.
The Tuesday sessions take place at Capilano Park (109A Avenue & 50 Street), Gold Bar Park (10955 50 Street) & Rundle Park (2909 113 Avenue). Please note: The schedule will be emailed to registered participants. Please note that the following park usage may change, as it is subject to approval from the City of Edmonton.
What to wear
Footwear: Running shoes or winter boots with good tread for traction, and laces so the shoes stay on the participants feet in the mud/slush.
Clothing: Comfortable clothing that you can move in! We recommend long pants and long sleeves, so you don’t get scratched by branches and prickles. On cool days/evenings, dress in layers so you can take a layer off when you warm up.
