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.
Our first StoryWalk® took place from March 6th to 21st at two locations.
Location 1: Vedder Park at the Vedder River Rotary trail
Location 2: Downtown Chilliwack – See the map below.
- Starting Point at The Bookman – 45939 Wellington Ave, Chilliwack, BC V2P 2C6
- Ending point at Barking Irons – Woolly Dog Alley #103, Chilliwack, BC V2P 2P1
We’ll be back again soon, in two different locations!
