3. TORONTO ZOO SPLASH PAD
The Toronto Zoo has been entertaining and educating people for over 40 years now but one of our favourite activities doesn’t even include the over 5,000 incredible animals on site! Splash Island is a two-acre waterpark with slides, waterfalls, spouts, tipping buckets and cool mists that are guaranteed to keep the kids happy and entertained in the summer sun. With their relatively inexpensive family membership you can go every weekend.
4. COMMON GOOD BEER
What’s on tap? Fun! Craft beer enthusiasts will love visiting Common Good Brewery near K-Square Condos. This small batch brewery always has something delicious available for those who enjoy a nice, ice-cold pint in the summer. Or try a flight of their German Pilsners, pale, brown and red ales. It’s fun to watch them brew the beer right there on site!
5. SCARBOROUGH MUSEUM
Summer Evenings are really special at the nearby Scarborough Museum. These four lovely historical buildings are located along the winding garden pathways of nearby Thompson Memorial Park. They are gorgeous just on their own but every Tuesday – Saturday they host summer evening activities and entertainment on the grounds that are sure to be memorable.
However you want to enjoy your time, summer days are sure to be anything but lazy when you live at K-Square.
