The back-to-school hustle and bustle is behind us. Pencil cases have been replenished. New shoes have been laced. Now it’s time to enjoy the fun side of fall. Ready to start checking off the activities on your fall bucket list? Let us get you started.
Get up close and personal with the changing colours of fall with a family forest walk. Conservation Halton’s new online reservation system for its parks allows visitors to reserve a day and a time for their visit in advance to help support social distancing practices. Hamilton Halton Brant’s many other conservation areas also offer wonderful woodsy walks.
Cooler temperatures make it a great time of year to get outside and try a new sport. Disc golf at Bronte Creek Provincial Park, rock climbing at Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area, archery at Kelso Conservation Area or outdoor yoga at Kelso Conservation Area are all fun family-friendly options.
Halloween excitement doesn’t have to be reserved for October 31! Take a daring drive through Pumpkins After Dark, a 2.5-km guided drive-through trail at Country Heritage Park in Milton has over 150 different pumpkin sculptures. Royal Botanical Gardens’ Great Pumpkin Trail lights up the night with hundreds of jack-o-lanterns along a walking trail.
We Look Forward To Seeing You Safely
As the COVID-19 situation in Ontario continues to change, a minute or two of extra planning is an important step in ensuring hiccup-free fall adventures. Follow the latest travel guidelines for your community and any communities you plan to visit. Check with the places you plan to go to in advance to see if reservations or activity bookings are required. On the day of your trip, do a quick check to verify the places on your agenda are open and serving visitors in the way you’re expecting.
Don’t forget to share pictures of your fall family fun with us by tagging them with #greatcanadiandaytrip.
