There’s nothing more fun than getting outside to enjoy some fresh air on the farm! Springridge Farm has an awesome kid’s play area that’s open 7 days a week all summer long at a very reasonable price. Find out more here!

We love getting back to nature right in our own backyard and visiting Bronte Creek Provincial Park!  Plus, they have a HUGE outdoor pool open all summer long, the perfect family activity on a hot day.

Conservation Halton

Another one of our favourite spots to visit are the Conservation Halton Parks, especially Mountsberg and Crawford lake.  These parks are FULL of great events all year long and even if there’s nothing special going on they are always nice to visit just for a walk.
