Kid's Safety Village of Durham Region

The Optimist Club of Ajax along with members of the Rotary Club Oshawa Parkwood founded the Kid's Safety Village of Durham Region back in 1995 and we are both very active with the village.

Since 1995 the Kids Safety Village of Durham Region has been teaching important skills to our youth. Fast forward nearly 20 years and 15,000 people visiting per year and it's time to refurbish the site and build a second classroom. We need your help!

Mother nature took a break from it’s snowstorms and bone chilling temperatures to allow Winterfest to shine. Winterfest, which has been running in Ajax for more than 15 years in a variety of formats, always draws hordes of people despite most of the activities being held outside in icy temperatures.

There was no shortage of things to do and see at this years event. Activities this year included ice sculpting demonstrations, dog sled rides, wagon rides, outdoor skating, a figure skating show, inflatable rides, arts and crafts and of course the Ajax Optimists were there with our snowshoes.

Enjoying some winter fun in Ajax ...
