Collingwood is a truly family-friendly town and there is so much for kids to do. Even though the median age is 41 years old, with about 20% of the population under 20, Collingwood still caters to what kids love.
Not only a farm full of apple orchards, pick-your-own raspberries and pumpkins, The Farmer’s Pantry has a variety of fun activities for active kids. Open all summer until Halloween, they’ve got a mini putt, rope maze, cedar maze, pony rides, sand mountain and a wildlife centre. Their Candy Apple Clinic is also very well attended.
Located at our beautiful local gem, Blue Mountain, ages 10 and up can make their way through the timber ropes challenges. Open from May to November, this is a fantastic spot to drop the teens and tweens for a day of conquering fears and having fun.
Younger kids aged six and up will love the same challenges that their older siblings get on the high ropes, this time on the low ropes. With ropes, logs, beams, cables and more, your child will learn how to navigate the world from the ropes above. Fun for the entire day or just for an hour, this is the perfect spot to bring kids of all ages.
Also located at Blue Mountain, Crock a Doodle is for the creative kids who like to get their hands dirty. Paint your own pottery for a day out with mom, for older kids on their own or as a birthday party idea. Even babies and toddlers can join in on the fun with hand and foot print making and early artwork pieces.
For those high-flying kids with limitless energy, the Collingwood Circus Club has just the solution. Aerial classes, circus kid’s classes, drop-ins and so much more, your kids and you will have a lot of fun at the Collingwood Circus Club. With everything from aerial silks, hoops, the trapeze, hula hoop and more, this place has some great options for exercise and fun and you can also hire a professional for a birthday party.
Not any ordinary park, Heritage Park in Collingwood offers soccer, baseball, an outdoor pool plus a skateboard and BMX park. Go for a picnic or spend the day lounging in this large park. Older kids often enjoy spending the day at Heritage Park with their sports equipment, bikes and skateboards.
With so much for kids to do in Collingwood, it is no wonder so many families are making it their home.
