About AutismBC Goes:
At AutismBC Goes events, we aim to foster a sense of community and belonging, ensuring that cost is never a barrier to participation.

About Centennial Park:
Centennial Park is a 18.42-hectare community park, located in the 7500 block of Wallace Drive, in Saanichton. It was created in 1958 to commemorate the establishment of British Columbia as a Crown Colony 100 years earlier. Since then, the park has grown in size and has a wide array of features including two sports fields (six ball diamonds), three concessions (open seasonally); a large children’s playground; three picnic shelters; a lawn bowling green, and clubhouse; a lacrosse box; three tennis courts; walking trails; natural areas and a fieldhouse (with public washrooms).
