    Stopped in at this wonderful place or a pint and something to eat.
    If you're looking for an outstanding selection of their craft brews on tap, you won't be disappointed. The place has a great vibe and I plan to go back with a few friends.

    Sunnidale is well maintained, quite a few trails and a decent amount of parking. Quite a few trees to provide shade as well. Great place to go for people of all ages.

    Enjoyable for a casual walk or a day at the beach. Watch out for the segregated walking and bike paths. Great idea to keep everyone safe. Lots to see and do and walk up a couple of blocks for many options of food and bevies.
    On our visit there weee small markets and bands in the park.

    The sculpture itself is neat, but on its own it is just okay, maybe 3 to 5 minutes of looking at it and taking pictures before you are thinking, 'okay what is next'. With it being at the waterfront though where there is a long walking and another biking trail in either direction you have a lot more to do and a lot more sights in the area. You have Centennial beach nearby to the south, and it is near the bus station, the only issue is if you are not a resident parking in the area is not free so ensure you have something else to see or do (the trail, the beach, the splash works zone in the summer, or a restaurant in the area - there are quite a few good ones)...

    The Customer Service is exceptional. I called but reached their voice mail. Even without leaving a message, Leena saw my number and returned my call the following day and asked how she could help. She resolved my issue and was very friendly. I often don't receive a call-back even when I DO leave a message with a company!

    I went to Barrie in late November and smell of Christmas already. A peaceful park located in downtown Barrie. Windy and cold, but still worth to walk around to enjoy the peaceful environment

    I’m writing the review, sipping coffee while my kiddo plays safely. They are adhering to the covid 19 guidelines. Reasonable entrance and price on drinks and snacks.

    You can go quite some distance and you will not find better corn on the cob than here. Fresh picked, sweet, great people and if you have kids along, tons of fun.

    We enjoyed the food court. The fries from NYF were hot and delicious. The gyros from Feta and Olive was tasty but small on the portion size. The rest of the mall was a decent size. There was a good range of stores, but some were a little on the small side.

    The Maclaren is a small gallery which has rotating exhibits. It doesn't take long to wander through it, and it has free entry-although you can put a donation in the donation box. There is a very good gift shop with locally made wares. There is also a very good cafe, which serves great lunches and coffee.
