Relax and Relish with Games on the Grass

Feeling tense after a long appointment or meeting? Come chill out and beat the summer heat with Games on the Grass! Head over to the Peace Plaza to get outside, bask in the sunshine and feel the grass beneath your feet all while enjoying a variety of lawn and board games.


You don’t have to be kid to enjoy playing outside; the Games on the Grass cart offers activities for all ages! Enjoy a game of Bean Bags with friends or challenge your co-worker to a game of Checkers as you de-stress from your daily activities.

The Games on the Grass cart is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm on the Peace Plaza. Available through October, weather permitting, this activity is a fun way to loosen up after work or kick back during your lunch hour.
