I have noticed that most, if not all, of the places one might take their child on a holiday afternoon are closed for the holiday. Except of course of public parks.... but The Rooms, Bulldog, Little Gym, Cygnus gym ... these sorts of places, are all closed on holidays.
It's too bad, because for working parents, holidays are some of the few times you would get to take your child to one of these places. I understand respecting a holiday like Remembrance Day, but Christmas and Easter and some of the other religious holidays are not celebrated by everyone.
I assume it is an issue of demand and staffing, but I am sure I am not the only one who would take advantage of a holiday to enjoy some quality time in a play group or activity with my child if I could.
Do you know of an activity centre open on holidays?
