Five things to do on Good Friday


Many people are going to church today and others just chill or binge on Netflix. If that’s not your thing, here are some other ideas. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

1Explore the Botanic Gardens

The Botanic Gardens playground will keep the kids entertained for hours.

With a new nature-themed playground, Chinese and Japanese gardens and beautiful pathways leading to secret nooks and crannies, the Botanic Gardens are a haven for explorers! Check out the plants, feed the ducks (not bread) and walk around.

2Alexandra Park Zoo

Have some fun at Alexandra Park Zoo and pat a furry friend or two! As well as the interesting animals featured in the zoo enclosures, Old Macdonald's Travelling Farm will also be at the grounds until Easter Sunday with bunnies, piglets, goats and more.
