What a hot end to the month!! Not that I am complaining at all, but sometimes too hot is too much!
Why not head to beach! We are surround by a gorgeous fresh body of water! Lake Simcoe is welcoming this time of year and Barrie and Innisfil are full of beautiful beaches! Not to mention all the great beaches just beyond our city in Orillia and Wasaga.
Innisfil Beach is just a short trip East off the highway and has a gorgeous park setting with a sandy beach for families to enjoy.
Barrie has several beaches you can enjoy! Johnson's Beach and Centennial beach both have a large section of beach area to spread out with the family and are equipped with lifegaurds. Both are located down town and easy to get to.
If the beaches aren't quite your thing, we have a few options for splash pads around our area! It's always fun to head to a great park and watch the kiddies splash around and play!
Here in Barrie we have Heritage Park with a great splash area right next to the lake. We also have a brand new splash pad at Lampman Lane, this just opened and is a great new place to head wtih the kiddies!!
Cookstown now has a splash pad as well, right near the Cookstown Library.
Just outside of our area th
ere are some great options as well! Gravenhurst Farmers Market has a little splash pad that is righ off the market and great for some cool down time after some shopping, Orillia has a great splash pad right on the lake with a great park and ice cream hut!
There are also many rec centres in the area including the YMCA that have great programs going on all summer long as well as swimming!
Of course, our favorite way to keep cool, is by joining momstown events! We have loads of great stuff all summer long! Beach days, water play, crafts, baby basics and the list of fun goes on!!
Enjoy this summer heat, stay cool and have fun! Before you know it we will be looking for ways to stay warm in the snowy days of winter!
