For fun and games, or even just to get out of the rain, Nickle Lake Regional Park has added a new feature to the park that is sure to help families fill their days with some more fun and variety. A new shed for activities has been installed in the kids area at the park.

"We’ve included an activities shed that we’ve brought in for kids of all ages to come in and take part in activities during the day, while they’re out of school, to give them something to do, to keep them busy and occupied,” said Park Manager Lisa Dennis.

“It's located by our paddling pool, just on outside of the fence right now, and we'll have all sorts of things going on there, like daily activities and crafts, plus some sports equipment, and soon to come, a cement pad where the kids can play basketball or hockey."

She added the shed is also big enough to accommodate indoor activities if it’s raining, but that they are still trying to find the right sized table for the interior. So far, she said, around 10 kids have been regularly attending the daily activities.

"I'm mother of four kids myself,” said Dennis. “I know that they're always looking for something to do at the lake, when they've been fished out, or it's raining out or they just need that extra something to do, so, i thought this would be a great addition to our lake."

She said that so far they have light up lawn darts, light up bean bag toss games, a moveable badminton net, outdoor Jenga, Yardzee, and more.

Of course, it's not for just kids.

"Adults can come and play those games too," she said. "It's for everybody, actually."

She added that the park is currently accepting donations of additional outdoor activities, such as sports equipment, and even leftover school supplies or craft supplies.
