Orangeville is waiting to be discovered by visitors of all ages. Many fun and affordable activities offer opportunities for families to connect while enjoying year-round entertainment.

All-season adventure at Island Lake Conservation Area

Island Lake Conservation Area offers outdoor adventures for everyone in the family. The natural retreat features 330 hectares of lake, wetland, forest and meadow. A morning spent at Island Lake is a sure way to enjoy a dose of fresh air while engaging with nature and each other.

Accessible, well-maintained trails welcome hikers and cyclists of all ages and abilities. Take a moment to stop and admire the views from a trail-side bench or boardwalk bridge. Keep an eye out for local wildlife and birds who call this outdoor oasis home.

In the summer, spend some time on the water canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Snowshoeing and ice fishing are popular winter activities. Check the event calendar to time your visit with a popular outdoor event such as the Maple Syrup Festival or a fishing derby.

Break for lunch

Worked up an appetite? Many of our restaurants and cafés cater to families. From kids' menus to three-course delights, you'll find something to satisfy that rumbling tummy.

A leisurely afternoon

After lunch, wind down the day in downtown Orangeville. It's the ideal setting for some quiet time to help you relax after a busy morning filled with adventure.

Get lost in a book at Storyland, a family-friendly space at the Mill Street Library, or channel your inner artist at Pottery Parties Studio.

On the hunt for treasure? Follow one of our scavenger hunts to find locations and solve clues as you discover our public art collection, historic landmarks, and downtown businesses. Self-guided walking tours are another way to explore the area. 

More energy to burn?

Kids can run, jump, slide, and climb at one of our indoor playgrounds, Jungle Oasis or Recess Play. For those who prefer to roll, the skateboard and BMX parks offer an outlet for all the tricks, twists, and turns you can muster. Splash pads are open seasonally at Fendley Park and Harvey Curry Park. Use our online map to discover these and other family-friendly parks in Orangeville. 

With so many activities, there is no shortage of ways to keep everyone in the family entertained and energized during your stay in Orangeville.
