The kids are out of school and before they get underfoot and start yelling “I’m bored!!” here is a great list of some free and low-cost things to do this summer.
Our favourite thing to do in the summer is to ride our bikes over to Second Beach Pool. If you pack a lunch, this costs the princely sum of $6 for pool admission, which is a pretty great deal.
Join us for a summer rooftop party!
It’s going to be a casual, laid-back affair for adults only. Come and hang out and share some good cheer in the best party spot there is.
Saturday, July 6, 8-10 pm
Rooftop B Bldg
Bring a snack to share
Hosted by the social committee–see you there!
Monday is Canada Day, and, as ever, we have the best seat in the house for the fireworks!
The easiest and closest Canada Day celebration is of course, taking place at Canada Place. There will be food trucks, entertainment, and concerts, including Delhi 2 Dublin, and culminating in Fireworks at 10:30 pm.
If you want to venture further afield, check out these other Canada Day celebrations:

The night’s program includes:
- O Canada

Allegretto from Symphony No.7
- John Williams
Adventures on Earth (from E.T.)
Romeo & Juliet Fantasy-Overture
Selections from West Side Story
Admission is free, and there will be food trucks available for snacks, or bring your own, along with a blanket or low chairs so as not obstruct the view of those behind you.

In addition to Stanley Park, there will also be free movie screenings at Canada Place.
Waterfront Cinema at Canada Place happens Thursday nights throughout the summer on the far north end of the Canada Place, running from July 11 to Aug 29.
Here is the 2019 schedule:
Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, snacks will be available for purchase.
There’s nothing that says “Summer in Vancouver” quite like movies in Stanley Park.
This year’s lineup starts July 2 and runs every Tuesday night through until August. Movies start at dusk, so that usually means between 9 and 10 pm. Bring a picnic, or there are food trucks on site… and don’t forget the Bike Valet is there to keep your wheels safe.
For more info, please visit Evo Summer Cinema.
It won’t quite be the party it was last year… but that’s okay, we can only do that once a decade or so!
Join your neighbours for burgers and fun on Saturday, June 15, from 4-6 pm for our annual Summer BBQ.
We’ll have burgers and hot dogs (both regular and veggie), sides and drinks. We’ll also have games for the kids.
Hope to see everyone there!
