Go outside with the kids and enjoy the beauty of fall while it lasts! For today’s post, the blog team at your preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has a great list of family-friendly outdoors activities for residents at Waterloo apartments.
Fall 5 KM Classic
Previously known as the original Oktoberfest Run, the 20th annual Fall 5 KM Classic includes your choice of a 10 kilometre, 5 kilometre or 200-metre Kids Fun Run. The first 1,000 registrants receive a free long-sleeve t-shirt, plus everyone is invited to stay afterwards for post-race refreshments and live entertainment. Races are October 23rd and start at Westvale Public School and finish in Waterloo Park (50 Young Street West). The park is a 15-minute walk from Pinegrove Apartments (145 Lucan Avenue).
Snyder’s Family Farm
There are over 15 family-friendly fall attractions to explore at Snyder’s Family Farm (936685 Blenheim Road), a 25-minute drive from Pinegrove Apartments. From the Tractor Run to the 5-Acre Corn Maze, the Haunted Hiller House to the Petting Zoo, there is certainly something for everyone here. The farm is open to the public over the weekends in September and daily in October.
Huron Natural Area
Huron Natural Area (801 Trillium Drive) is a beautiful retreat from the city, just a 15-minute drive from Pinegrove Apartments in neighbouring Kitchener. Go for a hike or a family bike ride, or consider signing up for a special outdoor activity, such as the free Family Forest Walk on October 8th.
Canoeing the Grand
Your kids will never forget their first canoe ride on the Grand River, especially with fall’s brilliantly changing colours as a backdrop. As a special treat this season, consider booking a tour through Canoeing the Grand (3734 King Street East) for a full-day of outdoor fun with the family. The rental shop is a 10-minute drive from Pinegrove Apartments.
The blog team at Williams and McDaniel wishes you and your family a safe and fun fall as you spend time outdoors enjoying the cooler weather. For more information about spacious family-friendly Waterloo apartments, please visit our website.
