Summer, 2018 (Date TBD) – 3rd Annual Vancouver CEAN Picnic

  • Location: Annieville Lions Park , Delta, British Columbia
  • Time: TBD
    The Vancouver CEAN Picnic will take place in Summer 2018 at Annieville Lions Park in Delta, BC This will be a good opportunity to meet other people with esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula and their families, share our stories and have some fun!

    Annieville Lions Park is located on 112th Street between 91 Avenue and 92a Avenue (although it does not have an address the approximate location for GPS purposes is 9150 112th Street). Annieville Lions Park has plenty of activities for children including various playgrounds, sport fields, baseball diamonds and a small water park. Make sure to bring a bathing suit if you plan on enjoying the waterpark; there are change rooms.

    Because of the various diet restrictions, we are asking families to bring their own lunches and drinks. However we will be providing dessert. The picnic will take place regardless of weather so make sure to wear appropriate clothing and, if you can, bring lawn chairs (on the off-chance that we can’t get a picnic table).

    Looking forward to seeing all of you!
