Our world has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic. It has not been easy for anyone, but the positive news is that it has brought many communities together, and every day we take one step closer to recovering and moving forward together.
We love our community...and if you have been reading our blog, following us on social media or are a customer, you know this is 100% true!
Summer is upon us, and while we may not all be able to do everything we hoped and planned to do, we still wanted to share some of the fun things you can do in Milton and Halton region. And if you don’t see something in our blog and you think it should be front and centre, let us know – we love feedback.
Farmers’ Market, Main Street Milton: The Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from the May long weekend until Thanksgiving. Local farmers usually take over Milton’s Main Street to sell their healthy and tasty produce, but this year they have temporarily moved to the Country Heritage Park. While we will miss walking the Main Street, we are thrilled that we can still check out everything that’s in season, show our kids that food doesn’t grow in a grocery store, and enjoy our guilty pleasure - butter tarts! For the most current information, visit their website: http://miltonfarmersmarket.ca/
Hilton Falls, Campbellville: Conversation Halton has so much to offer, especially Hilton Falls. There are trails to explore by foot or bike, waterfalls, rivers and the old Mill Ruins. With all that fresh air and natural beauty, you’ll feel 100% recharged after visiting. Due to COVID-19 there are some restrictions to make sure you check out their website for the most up-to-date information: https://conservationhalton.ca/park-details?park=hilton-falls
Halton Country Radial Railway: This tiny railway is at the top of our list. We love taking kids to visit the museum because it’s hands on, it’s small and we always have an awesome experience. The Halton Country Radial Railway is just north of Storage Solutions Milton on Guelph Line (very short drive up Guelph Line close to the 401). It’s based at the Rockwood Station and hosts old trains that you actually ride, delicious ice cream, and is run mainly by volunteers, which we think is really cool. The passion behind this place is evident and it’s worth checking out. They are currently closed until Sept 1, but do check out their website for any changes: https://hcry.org/.
We also wanted to share these other 2 fun things to do, which may not be open to the public this summer, but are places you will want to visit when they do re-open:
Terre Bleu Lavender Farm: There is a lavender farm just north of Storage Solutions Milton, which is just beautiful. If you’ve seen someone post a picture of themselves by a yellow door in a field of purple lavender, then they’re at Terre Bleu. Terre Bleu also recently expanded and has other flower fields. We personally love the bees the best – there’s thousands of them and Terre Bleu has a very inventive way for people to walk into a screened, outside room to see the bees (just in case you’re nervous about getting a little sting). Note: While their farm is currently closed to the public, they are offering curbside pick-up for online order. Their website offers more details: https://www.terrebleu.ca/.
Woodbine Mohawk Park: The Mohawk attracts a lot of out-of-town visitors, but locals should give it a shot, if they haven’t yet. The facility itself has been extensively renovated and is very nice. We love the renovation, not just because the location is brighter, but the food has been overhauled and is delicious. There’s many fireworks and family fun nights specifically aimed for families with young children and watching horse racing really is mesmerizing. Check out their website for the most current info: https://woodbine.com/mohawk/.
As you can see, Halton, and in particular the area around Milton, has so much to offer!
We encourage our customers in Milton, Halton Hills, Campbellville, Oakville and Burlington to try to get out this summer and experience some or all of these. Before you go, make sure to check their websites or give these places a call first to check for any changes in hours of operations or access due to COVID-19.
