Sheep in the Park (Pointe-Claire)

Date/Time

Jun 11, 2018 to Jul 20, 2018
10:00 AM until 08:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

Pointe-Claire will host a group of six sheep as part of an eco-grazing project. 

The sheep will be housed in a temporary enclosure and will spend their days grazing on grass, to help maintain the park in a completely natural manner. 

A series of educational activities is planned during these six weeks, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.: 

June 14: Knitting with sheep – all levels 
June 21: Bilingual story hour, followed by a craft (ages 3-6) 
June 28: Art creation for families 
July 5: Family picnic, followed by a children’s show (in French) 
July 12 : Yoga with sheep – adults (bring your own yoga mat) 
July 19: Shearing and spinning demonstration 

Feed can be purchased every Saturday for $0.25. 

A shepherd will be at the park at all times to watch over the flock. 

In case of rain, storms, and heat waves, the sheep will be placed in a shelter and will therefore not be in the park, and activities will take place at the Noël-Legault Community Centre, located at 245 Du Bord-du-Lac–Lakeshore Road.
