Discovery Files : Willow Park Village

Stampede is in full swing around us... no pun intended. As much as I love it and all of the amazing events and activities that surround it, it's nice to be able to sneak away within the city and not have to worry about parking and hectic traffic.
The last few weeks have been so incredibly busy and I felt like Luke and I were long overdue for a date night. We also needed to pick up veggie burgers, for a bbq Sunday from M&M's meat shops; so I suggested that we go to Willow Park Village and double up enjoying our date and running an errand or two at the same time.
We decided to try The Broken Plate and had an amazing authentic greek dinner.
From there we wandered over to the Starbucks and picked up some iced coffee to sip since it was still 29 degrees out. From there we went to indulge in some of my favourite cupcakes at Crave for dessert and to bring home to LL.
On the way, I was delighted to discover the art installation that I've heard so many people talking about. I had to stop for a picture at the hydrangea wall (image at top) and then we sat for awhile to admire the colourful display of dozens of umbrellas overhead.
I think it's wonderful to have these sorts of art installations at our disposal to pop by and see. They create an interesting experience for children and I can't wait to return with LL sometime before July 28th when they'll be coming down.

We left feeling happy and full and inadvertently had picked up everything we'd need to make our way through the weekend and even a few things we didn't need.  All in all a great night at Willow Park Village.
