    It’s a church. Nice one. Not very fancy but feels historic. It’s too bad they removed the towers it gave the place a character and an original look

    This is the time to see the trilliums at the Arboretum. This is a great place to walk and enjoy nature.

    Wonderful pool for kids in the summer and rink in the winter. Bands, performance and much more. Better for family than couples.

    There are so many different things to do in a library. There are kids, mom and senior group activities throughout the week. March break always provides different activities at different branches. The main branch downtown often has crafts, movies etc for the kids. You have access to internet, movies, paper back book or books on tape, magazines and lets us not forget the parts of the world you can discover as well as all the topics you can research.
    There is something for everyone of all ages. Those who like to read can just have a blast. Those who do not like to read can listen to tapes. The possibilities are endless.
    As to the amount of time you spend there that would be up to you as there are comfortable chairs and tables to sit at if you wish to do your reading or studying while at the library.
    Great to do on a sunny day when you want to get out of the heat but do not forget those rainy cloudy or snowy days when you just want something to do.

    It is always a good time to go and spend sometime in the library.

    I grew up attending this church. My mom was the first Female Warden in the Anglican Church at this Church. St. Georges was first built in the city's square downtown and later moved to its current site. It's craftsmanship is amazing.I recently went back to the church to view its beauty. It is a must see when visiting Guelph. .

    Great historical stop & really enjoyed the area & trails. Quite an accomplishment of the actual bridge construction & how it has survived all these years. We found the trail signs & actual bridge directions were not well marked out, depending upon the direction you arrived from. Would recommend an improvement for local & tourists visiting the area to stop & enjoy the beauty & peace fullness. Appreciated the fact that the area was clean & that visitors appreciated the beauty & nature by respecting the area, especially for the local residents that live there.

    Royal city park is a very nice and spacious park in Guelph. Close to downtown it has lots of parking, lots of trails, picnic tables and activities to do. its right along a canal that opens up to big body of water near the Wellington st dam. Tons of walkers, hikers, joggers, bikers use the trails along the water. people fishing along the banks and off Gow's bridge, people fishing near the dam. You can see huge carp on the back side of the dam. The canal is used for canoes and kayaks as well with spots along the canal to launch from.

    Nice patio to enjoy some beer and food. It was our first time so we did half pours. The beer variety was good and they all tasted great. The flat bread was a good treat to have while enjoying beers

    With covid in the world these days, I have been looking for outdoor activity options and the outdoor gallery here turned up. We enjoyed wandering through it and trying to figure out what each piece was about... amusing to later find the descriptions on a plaque. The indoor gallery was also open, but we opted out to be covid cautious. So it wasn’t a long stop, but something to do besides sit at home in a summer day during a pandemic.

    Visit to Stone road mall in search of a screen guard for our phones turned out to be a good visit. We got what we wanted without any hassle and we were able to do some shopping too. Plenty of stores that are just available in this mall in our area. It is an indoor mall so a good place to be in chilly winter days.
