Furry Friend Easter Treat Hunt with Pet Planet
Pop into Pet Planet and grab everything you need to create a DIY dog Easter treat hunt. Set up a series of trainers, treats and toys around the backyard to see what your pooch can find – it’s guaranteed to get their brain working hard! Mental stimulation is key to dog health because it improves their cognitive functions and can even be more exhausting than physical exercise for them. Plus, it is adorable to watch their minds busy at work and the tail-wagging excitement when they find their hidden treasures. Need some space to host your hunt? Don’t forget the Urban Dog Park at the North Pond.
Hoppy Hour at The Banquet

Start a new Easter tradition by creating a scoreboard and keeping track of wins and losses. With more than 30 beers on tap and a curated menu of signature cocktails, or mocktails there is something for everyone to enjoy.
