Science in the Park

Science in the Park is a special learning treat awaiting families who enjoy Vancouver's summertime Noon Concert Series, held on the six consecutive Wednesdays following July 4, at Esther Short Park, located at Eighth and Esther streets in downtown Vancouver.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., prior to and during every Noon Concert, children can try hands-on crafts and experiments, all designed for fun and learning about water, nature and the environment.

Each week at this year’s Science in the Park, kids can explore what different scientists do!

  • Wednesday, July 8 – Be a Marine Biologist, and study life in the ocean.
  • Wednesday, July 15 – Be an Entomologist, and uncover the hidden world of bugs.
  • Wednesday, July 22 – Be a Geologist, and have fun with rocks.
  • Wednesday, July 29 – Be a Wildlife Biologist, and research animals – big or small – in their natural environments.
  • Wednesday, August 5 – Be a Botanist, and smell the flowers and plants.
  • Wednesday, August 12 – Be a Chemist, and discover more about chemicals and their interactions with one another.

Food vendors are also on-site providing a variety of tasty meal options. Parking is available at the Park ‘n Go Garage, conveniently located next to Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver. The entrance to the garage is on 6th Street between Washington and Columbia Streets.

It’s a fun way for families to spend a summertime lunch and learning, complete with great music. Remember, Noon Concerts and Science in the Park are free!
