In-person

Enjoy a story while you stroll through Scott Park! The Story Stroll is an active literacy program between the Town of Porcupine Plain & Porcupine Plain Public Library, whereby pages from stories are posted on plaques on trees throughout the park and pages are read by visitors as they "stroll" through the park. For the first week of Culture Days, between September 23rd and 30th, a copy of Phyllis's Orange Shirt will be posted, with a brief history of Orange Shirt Day and Truth & Reconciliation Day. Stories will be updated throughout the rest of Culture Days. As the Porcupine Plain area has a rich Ukrainian history, as well as a large Filipino community, we will update the Story Stroll with pages of books written in both English/Ukrainian and English/Filipino.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.

This event is free.

Organized by

Town of Porcupine Plain

Porcupine Plain is a vibrant community; the Town strives to provide good governance while providing residents of Porcupine Plain & Area with a secure place to live, work and raise a family, embracing nature, culture and diversity, and providing the best recreation opportunities possible. The Town's goal is to provide safe and accessible facilities and amenities that are enjoyable for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities. Scott Park is a beautiful green space centrally located within the Town of Porcupine Plain; programming has been introduced to bring families out to enjoy the park and, in 2021, picnic tables were donated by a local business to help make the space more inviting. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Porcupine Plain and Porcupine Plain Public Library worked together to introduce the Story Stroll at Scott Park, an active literacy program meant to keep children and adults active and maintain children's reading skills at a time when programming was not permitted at the Library. The Story Stroll has become a very popular program, enjoyed by many families with young children and by local daycare providers; even adults and seniors enjoy reading the posted stories while out for a walk!
