Choose Halton for Family Day Fun!

One of the many things I love about Halton is the beauty of our natural surroundings and the wide variety of activities available to us in our own backyard. As we celebrate Family Day on February 15, 2016, you can experience so much of what our region has to offer.  There is really something for your whole family to see, do and experience in Halton.

Explore Conservation Halton for an active,fun day, from sleigh rides at Mountsberg to skiing and snowboarding at Glen Eden. Try a family hike or snow-shoeing at Kelso or Rattlesnake Point. These are only a few of the locations and activities Conservation Halton has to offer.

Bronte Creek Provincial Park also has family fun planned at the Nature Centre with live animals, crafts and displays. You can even bring your skates for outdoor skating at the rink.

In addition to the parks, each of Halton’s municipalities has plenty of fun planned. For local schedules and events, as well as outdoor skating locations, visit your municipality’s website:
