We’re excited to announce that StoryWalk® will be in Chilliwack from March 6-21, in two locations.
StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are posted in store windows or attached to wooden stakes which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail or sidewalk, you’re directed to the next page in the story. This combines three critical elements for overall family health: early literacy learning, family engagement outdoors, and physical activity.
One location will begin at Vedder Park and make it’s way down the Vedder River Rotary Trail.
The other location is in Downtown Chilliwack business windows. It begins at The Book Man on Wellington Avenue. From there you’ll make your way to participating businesses (listed below) until you reach the end of the story at Barking Irons Roastery in Woolly Dog Alley. Each page will guide you to the next one so don’t worry about getting lost.
