Get out and have family fun in Halton over March Break

March Break is almost here and if you are staying in Halton, there are so many things for you and your family to do. The HaltonParents team of public health nurses have been tweeting their growing number of followers about local activities for March Break, and reminding parents and caregivers to get out and be active with your kids. It’s not only great for your health, but it’s also great for building stronger connections with your children, no matter if they are 6 or 16.

Of course, as a former hockey player, skating was one of my favourite activities to do with my kids, but I used to love any times I spent with them when they had breaks from school. Here are some thoughts for what you can see and do in Halton this week:HRCA Crawford Lake

Of course, these are just a handful of ideas for you and your family. I encourage you to find out more about what is available just outside your front door. You can even check out the HaltonParents blog for more ideas about what to do with your kids during the winter. Enjoy the week.

Welcome to Halton (video)

Whether you enjoy the rural backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment or the picturesque views of a charming downtown street, Halton Region maintains a diverse landscape for both residents and visitors looking for the perfect blend of urban and rural scenery.

Did you know that Halton has over 25 kilometres of waterfront property and is home to Canada’s largest botanical garden? Also, did you know that there are only 16 classified UNESCO World Biosphere Reserves in Canada and the Niagara Escarpment is one of them? Or, were you aware there are over 10 kilometres of natural footpaths to uncover at Bronte Creek Provincial Park? These are only some of the many offerings that contribute to Halton Region’s rich quality of life.

Located less than an hour’s drive from Toronto and Niagara, we are fortunate to experience the shift of the seasons and enjoy the many activities that go along with a new time of year. In Halton you can visit a local farm in the fall and go apple picking, enjoy exceptional winter skiing and snowboarding at Glen Eden, spend a spring afternoon shopping and dining along the lakeshore or take in a summer festival under the sun. No matter what your preference, there’s something for everyone in Halton.

I invite you to check out our recently updated Welcome to Halton video and see why Halton is such a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
