Experience family fun

Family fun happens in Orangeville! Many affordable and energetic activities are available to enjoy in our family-friendly community.


Exploring Island Lake Conservation Area is a must for families searching for a solid dose of fresh air. No matter the time of year, over 330 hectares of lake, wetland, forest and meadow offer endless opportunity for four-season fun. Well-maintained, multi-use trails welcome bikers, hikers, strollers, and explorers of all ages.  In the summer, spend some time on the water canoeing, kayaking or fishing.  Snowshoeing and ice fishing are popular winter activities and watch for special events happening all year-round.

A morning spent at Island Lake is a sure way to re-connect with nature and each other.

Worked up an appetite? Time for lunch! Many of Orangeville’s restaurants and cafes cater to families.  Afterwards, Downtown Orangeville is the ideal setting for some quiet time to help you wind down after a busy morning.  Relax with a book at Storyland, a newly-renovated space at the Mill Street Library or create a master piece at Pottery Parties Studio.  What about a treasure hunt? You can search for more than 50 unique trees sculptures scattered throughout Orangeville. Pick up your guide to the Art Walk of Tree Sculptures and find your favourite carving.

More energy to burn? Orangeville’s arenas and pools offer drop-in schedules or run, jump, slide, and climb at one of two indoor playgrounds – Jungle Oasis and LotsoFun. For those who prefer to roll, the skateboard and BMX parks offer opportunities for tricks, twists, and turns.  You can try archery and axe throwing at Far Shot Recreation for a different sort of thrill or check out Kai’s VR Oasis for something new.

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