Work up your appetite for your delicious dinner out with a leisurely walk in one of our region’s verdant greenspaces. Royal Botanical Gardens, in Burlington, is the largest botanical garden in the country, making it a perfect place to stretch out your date on a summer day. Check out the Rock Garden, originally built in the 1930s, that now boasts a dramatic waterfall. The International Sculpture Garden should also be on your must-see list while you’re there. Oakville’s Gairloch Gardens is another beautiful option for an afternoon stroll with stunning Lake Ontario views. After your walk, head inside to check out the Oakville Gallery’s contemporary art exhibits. When you’re finished at the gallery, spend some time exploring the unique shops of downtown Oakville.
