by Sasha Andrew Haydon Park is ready for spring.
The snow has melted from the paths. Well, almost.
And the geese are struting around in pairs, fiercely defending their territory.
Pretty soon, the chains will be off the gates. Water from the waterfall will fill the pond, and the delightful chaps at the shoreline will race their remote-controlled sailboats. And if you ask, they will be happy to show you how they work, perhaps even pluck one out of the water and point out the magical gears inside. (This has been known to happen.)
There will be kids on the play structures, and water in the water park. There will be concerts in the bandshell on Wednesday evenings, and fireworks on Canada Day. The geese will rule the ponds, but if you're lucky, you may spot a heron.
Are YOU ready for spring?
