  • Better than your typical playground

    Collingwood is the place to be if you love being active. It’s seriously an all season town with never ending things to do. I’m not sure which water activity I like best, kayaking or paddle boarding, but when in doubt, do both :-) I love paddling either at sunset or sunrise. The bay is calm and peaceful, the sounds and scenery are almost mesmerizing as you glide through the water, sometimes with a swan right beside you. You can’t beat biking along the many trails as well, often finding cute little “secret” spots along the way.

    I enjoy riding my bike on the Town of Collingwood Trails through Harbourview Park, along the Waterfront Promenade and Harbour, and out the Spit to Millennium Park. The scenery is breathtaking and inspiring. I am excited to cycle down to the Sidelaunch Days Festival!
