Celebrate Family Day at Our Parks
Free Activities on Family Day
Join us for a special day outdoors with family and friends!
Enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, ice fishing, kicksledding, cross-country skiing or skating .
Visitors can join our experienced staff in a free Learn to Fish session where you will learn about fishing in winter and ice safety. Sessions start every 30 minutes. Family Day is also the last day of the annual Ice Fishing Derby. Purchase a ticket and see if you can catch the big one. An Ontario Fishing Licence is not required, as it is Ontario Family Fishing weekend.
After your adventure, warm up by the campfire with the Friends of Island Lake. Hotdogs (all beef, halal and veggie) and s'mores kits are available for purchase to roast over the open flames. Chat with the Orangeville Rotary Club as you grab a complimentary hot chocolate.
Snowshoes are available to borrow for free for 30 minutes. Activities and rentals vary by location and are available based on winter conditions. Please check Park Advisories for updates.
