Patrons are more than welcome to bring along deckchairs, blankets and picnics. However we do ask that patrons with high deckchairs position themselves towards the back of the park, to ensure they don’t block the view of patrons without them.
There will be a selection of mobile food vendors on site offering dinner and dessert options.

Backyard Cinema: All the Time in the World
Director Suzanne Crocker
Duration 88 mins
Rating PG (Mild themes)
Searching for a new perspective, a family leaves the comforts of home with their three young children, to live for 9 months in the remote wilderness of the Canadian North. They spend the long northern winter living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, no Internet and not a single watch or clock. Set in the Yukon Territory, and filmed off grid without a traditional crew, ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD is a deeply personal and family friendly documentary that explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment. This multi-award winning film is a poetic, inspiring and humorous documentary that chronicles one family’s endeavour to let go of the control that is required in our time-based world.
