Free summer fun

kids, summer

There's a lot of fabulous summer field tripping fun to be had - water parks, amusement parks, zoos and farms and drive-in movies. But there's so much to do to entertain the kids in the summer that's completely free, too.

Bike riding through the neighbourhood and hiking through the local trails. Playing at a park or a trip to the local outdoor splash pad. If you're lucky enough to live near a beach the kids can spend a whole day playing in the water and the sand, and a picnic lunch anywhere other than home is always a special treat for little ones.

A movie, museum or indoor playplace are fun activities for a rainy day, but there are lots of free indoor options, too. Most malls have a free play area for little ones. The library is a great place to spend an afternoon, and often has free children's programs and special events. Community centres offer a variety of free or inexpensive drop-in programs, and a public swim at the local indoor pool is several hours of fun.

Toronto has so many amazing destinations for family fun - Canada's Wonderland, Centre Island and Centreville, Wild Water Kingdom, the Toronto Zoo, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Ontario Science Centre...the list is endless.

But we're also a city rich in walking and biking trails, beaches, parks, botanical gardens, and outdoor theatre and art. Summer fun with the family can mean field trips to amazing destinations, but just as many special memories can be made without spending a cent.
