Move your attention away from the city to the amazing colours of the Arboretum and you will refill your body and mind with positive energy and good vibes.
Take the trail to downtown Newmarket
Or, if you are one of the sporty kind, hop on your bike and take a ride on the trail! Or do your weekly jogging on the trail or take a relaxing walk. Whatever works better for you.
Take your kids to the UrbanPark Playland
Especially when the weather is not on your side, grab kids by the hand and bring them here! This place offers a great, safe environment for kids to play in and waste their energy! You can also organise parties for them at the UrbanPark, and you can rest assured that the employees are taking great care of the little ones.
Check out the Canadian Moments Mural
The street mural on Wellington, at the Yonge intersection, is a small piece of illustrated history. It never gets old and one never gets tired of seeing it. Move your attention from whatever you are doing while there and focus on the details of the mural. It is totally worth it.
