Pop-up StoryWalk coming to 8 different Chilliwack parks this summer

Folks can read stories every Friday morning during the outdoor literacy event

Stories will be popping up in eight parks throughout Chilliwack this summer.

Starting July 8, there will be a pop-up StoryWalk every Friday morning at a different park during the months of July and August.

StoryWalk is an outdoor literacy event where people read a children’s story spread out page-by-page along an outdoor path. Laminated pages from the book will be attached to wooden stakes in the park.

This combines three critical elements for overall family health: early literacy learning, family engagement outdoors, and physical activity.
