Westmount Park

We are fortunate to have this Victorian-era park located steps from our front door.

Following two days of snow – it was covered in a white blanket during our evening walk.

Those that have dogs can disconnect, for a (well needed)  period of time, from the world’s events!



Westmount Badges

Do you remember these?

In the past, the city designed and distributed badges during their annual Family Day and Winter Carnival festivities.

I recall Beverly Adams, a former member of the Sports and Recreation Department, was responsible for involving local children in their design.

This is a sample of our collection:





Westmount Park

A (very) chilly walk through the park this evening.  The city had their 34th annual Winter Carnival today – sleigh rides, free hot dogs and maple taffy in the snow. In the past, the city would design lovely badges (with pins) for those attending this event. (I have a box full of these dating back to the 1980s  when our daughter was small).  I am sure for safety (and legal) reasons that tradtion has been discontinued.  How did we ever manage to grow up safely in the 1950 and 1960s!
