Human butterflies, spiders and flowers ran through Wakamow Valley from station to station participating in the day's activities. 

From doing yoga in the park, or crawling into a fire truck, these face-painted kids were having a blast.

For the 14th year in a row, Wakamow Valley has played host to a free family Kids Day. 

"It's a kick-off to summer and it's a way for kids to come down and have fun. It's also a way to showcase to people the beautiful park we live in," said Margaret Maron, CEO of Wakamow Valley. 

Kids got the chance to go on canoe rides, critter dip for fish and dance to music in the hills.

"This really gets them back into nature. It also get them realizing there are actual living things in the river," said Maron. 

Some of the popular activities for the day were the inflatables and children entertainment.

Moran says the park is a good way to escape from the city and enjoy what the area has to offer, especially for those who can't afford to get away in the summer.

"Moose Jaw is very fortunate to have such a beautiful natural valley within walking distance from downtown. This is a place where you can get away from home."

This year Wakamow Valley will be introducing walking tours which will take place Thursdays and Fridays. For more summer activities in the valley check out
