Royal Athletic Park: FREE Community Access

Did you know Royal Athletic Park is open to the public for free? We have loved hosting free activities, workshops, and performances in the Park for the months of August and September!

See the City of Victoria flyer here. 

We are grateful to Canadian Red Cross and Government of Canada (Employment and Social Development Canada) for the funding that has made these community activities possible.

These are sorted and delivered by volunteers on Thursdays between 12-3pm. If you live in North Park, and would benefit from a hamper, please contact executivedirector@npna.ca.
