Nine-month-old Grayson Perlstrom spent Wednesday afternoon with his mother Sadie at Lions Park.

Lots of laughs at Lions Park

As temperatures drop Nelson families continue to take advantage of the Uphill playground.

Despite dropping temperatures, Nelson families continue to take advantage of Lions Park in Uphill. On Wednesday afternoon families and local daycares crowded into the playground to hang out in the grass, swirl down the slide and push each other on the swings.

Nine-month-old Grayson Perlstrom wasn’t quite ready to play with the older kids, but he was having a great time regardless while his mother Sadie toodled him around. Nearby neighbours Tika Vonkodic and Milla Pearl Stuffuck tried out the newly installed orange teeter totter while Oli Hauksson showed off his monkey bar skills.

Eli Leblanc was being pushed on the swing by his father Robbi alongside Brittany Schoeber and her son Julian. Meanwhile Grace Doerksen showed the Star how to climb up the coiled ladder on the playground.
