Traverse The Brock Trail

Brockville’s paved walking and cycling path, the Brock Trail, meanders along the waterfront and threads its way across Brockville’s downtown to follow Buell’s Creek north. It passes many popular local parks and sites along the way, such as Centeen Park, the Brockville Railway Tunnel and the Riverwalk on Blockhouse Island, past the Aquatarium, and to Hardy Park, Rotary Park, beaches, a spot to camp, and more!

The Brock Trail is a local favourite route and there is no mistaking why – with 12 km of water views and vistas, gorgeous gardens and green spaces, splash pads, playgrounds, educational centres, and history around every corner, visitors could spend the day traversing the trail and stopping at all the features in Brockville.

Halls Apple Market

What is even better than fresh apples? Fresh apple pie of course! At Hall’s Apple Market, you can pick your own batch to make something flaky and crumbly at home, or, to save you some time in the kitchen, grab one of their fruity pies on your way out – we hear they are the best in Brockville.

Aquatarium At Tall Ships Landing

The Aquatarium is an engaging, fun-filled, educational and interactive center where visitors can explore the history of this region, all year round. This 27,000 square foot centre showcases the diverse waters and wildlife of the St. Lawrence River and 1000 Islands. Best of all, you and your kids will love it!

 

BUSL Cider

BUSL Cider in Mallorytown is fresh on the scene with a cider bar featuring cherry, pear and even blueberry beet cider. This family-owned craft cidery is set in a beautiful orchard, where they produce premium apple ciders with unique flavours that stand out due to their originality and the fineness of their blends. Word on the street is that they’re also working on a limited quantity batch of pumpkin spice cider just for fall! Visit the new cidery production facility in a renovated barn open every day until October and then on weekends. Look for their trademark tractor indoors in their BUSL Boutique!

Brockville Speedway Races

If it’s fast-paced action you’re craving then the Brockville Speedway Races is the place to quell that racing bug. With races typically held every Saturday night and go-kart trials on Wednesday evenings, this 3/8 mile dirt track has been called the finest in the country. With grand-stand style seating and good views of the track from all angles, this friendly venue proves a winner time and again for families who feel the need for speed!

Perfectly Canadian If you’re anything like me and love nature but aren’t the type of person to go full remote camping then the Graham Lake Cottage is probably perfect for you too. I have been following Graham Lake Cottage on social media for quite some time and knew it would be an ideal getaway. Once Ontario got the green light to reopen, I quickly booked a two-night stay for September. It was soooo worth the wait. After the rush of summer tourism, I was feeling a little burnt out and...
