Picnic at Playland 2017!
Picnic at Playland is one of our best-loved events of the year!
For 47 years, the CKNW Orphans’ Fund has been hosting special needs children at our Annual Picnic at PNE’s Playland. Over 90,000 elementary and high school age children with various challenges, including learning difficulties, physical and/or mental challenges, have been able to attend this memorable event over the years. In 2017, Picnic at Playland was held on May 31.
In 2016 alone, we invited over 3,500 children to join us on this special day. We work with local organizations and school districts to ensure that children with special needs have the opportunity to be entertained for the day. The children in attendance at the picnic generally have challenges that would inhibit their enjoyment at Playland with the general public, so this day is incredibly special because they are provided with a unique opportunity to enjoy the park that is reserved just for them!
