FIELD LINES AT ELM PARK Kerrisdale community centre
JUNE 14, 2014 10:30am - 12:30pm Elm Park | 41 Avenue at Larch Street FREE | No registration required
At Elm Park (six short blocks west of Kerrisdale Community Centre) play with marking the field along with the League group and artist Germaine Koh. Here drawing will involve full-body motion, running and walking with the field-marking equipment, and participants will work together to invent a game to match the lines.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
League is an open group of people who gather to play sports and games invented by members of the community. Each game, its equipment, its playing field, and its strategies evolve through trial and improvisation. It’s problem-solving as play.
League gathers on the last Sunday of each month, generally starting at noon. Drop in to exercise your strategic instincts, stretch rules and limits, and workshop ideas for action. Find out more about the League project for inventing games and sports as a creative process at league-league.org.
Elm Park offers many recreational opportunities, including lawn bowling, tennis, and field sports. Benches offer engaging views of the park, and many people enjoy strolling under the lovely maple trees that line the park.
Originally owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) the park was officially named by the Park Board in 1951 after one of its bounding streets. Originally it had been known as Kerrisdale Park under the municipality of Point Grey before the City of Vancouver was amalgamated in 1929.
