      If you've camped out in your condo all winter, a trip down to the skating area at Canoe Landing Park might be in order. There will ice carving demonstrations, maple syrup snow candy, and lots of kid-focused activities, but also a great community vibe, which is rare in this vertical neighbourhood.
