Our vote for the most picturesque in Canada. For kids 10 and under, at Willingdon Beach. Children are grouped by age group (so toddlers don’t have to elbow in past bigger siblings) Free! Saturday, March 26. Sponsored by Parks, Rec and Culture and CUPE 798.
5. The Usual Suspects
The pool, the rink, the bike & skate park; beaches, trails, playgrounds, hockey courts, tennis courts, sea walk and lakes. And when you’re exhausted from all that enthusiastic family time, your TV and iPads will be waiting for you, right where you left them.
