Celebrating Moms & Mother Nature @ Metropolis at Metrotown (Win!)

April 30, 2024

This Mother’s Day, B.C.’s largest shopping centre is spreading major love to moms, the community and the environment, and we’ve got the 411 on all the fun.

A beloved annual event, Mother’s Day at Metropolis at Metrotown is jam-packed with activities for everyone. Better yet, this year, a “We Love Moms & Mother Nature” theme will see partial proceeds donated to Cause We Care Foundation! Below, the four best ways to celebrate your mom or the mother figures in your life at Metropolis at Metrotown:

Make a Wish in the English Garden Museum

The Grand Court will be transformed into a mesmerizing English garden museum, designed from an ant’s perspective—think giant flowers and woodland creatures, as well as fun facts about pollinators. There’s also a wishing tree, where you can hang your wishes written on a leaf tag. Metropolis at Metrotown will plant one tree for every wish. Dates: May 1 – June 1.

Pay Homage to Mother Figures and Mother Nature

Mother’s Day festivities at Metropolis at Metrotown are anchored by the “We Love Moms & Mother Nature” English garden party event, taking place in the Grand Court. The unforgettable afternoon features tasty food and refreshments, a build-your-own candy bar, an adopt-a-plant experience, a live DJ, an informative and interactive beehive experience, and more. Space is limited; tickets cost $40 per person, and include entry to the event as well as a gift bag with a $20 gift card to Metropolis at Metrotown. Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Cause We Care Foundation. Tickets are available now through May 10, and can be purchased online here. Date: May 11 (bookable time slots from 12-3pm).

Snap a Photo With Pretty Spring Décor

Photo opportunities abound with mini-park installations situated throughout the shopping centre. They’re the perfect backdrop for memorable family photos! Dates: Now through June 1.

Metropolis at Metrotown’s 2024 Mother’s Day theme carries a strong message of sustainability, and for good reason—the shopping centre is dedicated to protecting Mother Nature and eager to encourage shoppers to follow suit. Here are some ways Metropolis at Metrotown is supporting environmental responsibility:

Bee Habitat

Metropolis at Metrotown is home to 18,000 bees, which live on the roof, in beehives installed by Alvéole—a business dedicated to shedding light on agricultural issues like pesticide use, monocultures, and the loss of biodiversity.

Chopstick Recycling

Working with ChopValue, Metropolis at Metrotown has recycled over 1.3 million chopsticks, offsetting the equivalent of 65,285 kilograms of carbon emissions (as of January 2024).

Organic Recycling

The shopping centre uses only recycled paper, and has installed organic recycling stations in the food court. Electric vehicles welcome. The P1 parkade has six EV charging stations.

Mother’s Day celebrations at Metropolis at Metrotown run now through May 12. The shopping centre is open Monday to Saturday, 10am-9pm, and Sunday, 11am-7pm. More information can be found online. Happy Mother’s Day! —Vita Daily
