Need a bit of motivation to get outside and into a park? The Metro Vancouver Parks Passport Program is perfect for the people that love a bit of a challenge with their afternoon adventures in nature.
The passport program includes parks all over Metro Vancouver from Bowen Island to Mission. The initiative was created to give residents and visitors to Vancouver an extra reason to visit some of the amazing parks that are in close proximity to the city. The passport is free and gives you a chance to win awards.
If you are interested in taking part in the passport challenge, you can pick up a hard copy version of the booklet in seven locations around Vancouver, including:
Regional Parks West Area office - 130-1200 W. 73rd Ave
Metro Vancouver Office Info Centre - 4330 Kingsway
Burnaby Lake Regiona Park - 9146 Avalon Ave
More locations are listed on the Metro Vancouver Website.
You can also get a passport mailed to you by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or you can download a free app (MVPassport) if you would rather save some trees.
You can earn stamps by joining events listed in the passport, participating in programs listed in the Check it Out! Program Guide or by visiting the Burnaby Lake Regional Park Office or the Campbell Valley Regional Park Office (Langley). Win 15 stamps, you'll receive a 50 year commemorative pin and be entered into the grand prize draw. Get out and have fun!!
