Visiting Town Park for the Aurora Arctic Adventure Family day is now an official tradition. The only booking we have on the Family Day Monday is to visit the Town Park. As always lots of fun. Unfortunately, no public skating at the park this year due to warmer weather but that was absolutely fine with us. Big thank you to the hardworking Aurora Optimists! Nothing like a hot chocolate on the cold winter day!

In addition it is always nice to revisit changes around the park during the Aurora Arctic Adventure event. The most obvious one is an addition of another floor to the former Wells Street Public School.
“Aurora Arctic Adventure first began in 2002 in Town Park. It was moved to the Aurora Community Centre and Fleury Park from 2003-2007 and then back again to Town Park in 2008 where it remains a most popular wintertime event.” Source: Town Park, A Community Storybook | Aurora Museum & Archives
The Auroran 2015: “Hundreds braved a hefty blast of winter on Monday, celebrating Family Day with their loved ones at Aurora’s Town Park. It was time for the Town’s annual “Arctic Adventure” celebration, which featured new attractions, returning favourites, and a chance to take in the Indoor Farmers’ Market at the historic Armoury.” Source: Arctic air adds atmosphere to Arctic Adventure
