Family Day is just around the corner, and there’s plenty for you and your family to do while spending time together in the Town of Orangeville.

“We are so fortunate in Orangeville to be surrounded by many incredible spaces to enjoy with our families,” said Mayor Lisa Post. “From Ontario Parks and Island Lake right out of our doorstep, to free recreation activities at our arenas, the local museum, many incredible restaurants and several other amenities, you don’t have to travel far to create great family experiences.”

This year, the Orangeville Public Library and Orangeville Recreation have teamed up to provide the community with lots to see and do as they spend that special time together.

Leading up to Family Day, plan a great outing with your family by borrowing a pass to Ontario Parks, Credit Valley Conservation, or the Museum of Dufferin with your library card. All passes cover admission and parking.

On Family Day, make your way to Alder Recreation Centre between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to enjoy a variety of activities for all ages.

Here’s what you can expect throughout the event:

• Professional photo booth
• Crafts for kids
• Character visit from Paw Patrol
• B Social Concessions will also be open

The Alder Library will also be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for families to come and ignite their imaginations with books, the Lego table, and more.

Free skating for families will also be offered in both rinks at Alder throughout the day. Wristbands are required to enter and will be provided 30 minutes prior to the skate time. There is no pre-registration for skating times.
