This Saturday (May 27) from 10:00am to 6:00pm is Community Day at Playland! Bring your family, grab your friends and have a fun filled day in Playland! $10 from every regular ticket sold on May 27 (up to $10,000) will go towards the new PNE Community Grant Fund. This new grant fund was established to provide opportunities for Hastings Sunrise Community non-profit organizations and recognized groups to come together, learn, engage and enjoy this wonderful community!
The PNE has been a proud member of the Hastings Sunrise Community for 105 years, and boy have we seen the neighbourhood change! It seems that every day there is a new trendy restaurant or artisan cafe popping up and new families moving into this ever evolving, but always vibrant community.
We strive to not only produce attractions that all of Greater Vancouver can enjoy, but also events for our neighbours including a Farmers’ Market, annual Community Day at Playland and a Community BBQ. We’re also proud to host and support the events and initiatives of local community groups including this weekend’s LightWaterDrums lantern festival, community park walks, a Terry Fox Run for the local schools, an Easter egg hunt, the Learn to Fish Programs in the Sanctuary and numerous local conferences, workshops and festivals.
As we move forward with Hastings Park permanently being our home we will continue to grow our connection with the local community with continuing to build our programs and outreach. Check out all of our Community Relations initiatives and for local residents, make sure you’re signed up to receive our community e-newsletter to keep up with what’s happening here at Hastings Park.
