    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

    The park was clean, small, and simple, making it perfect for a relaxing visit. The charming little garden was an added delight that I absolutely loved.

    Excellent well organized Market that you can spend a whole day looking. Some great finds and keepsakes at reasonable prices. I still noticed allot of safety equipment from the Covid days. Automatic towel dispensers, Purell hand sanitizer's and many area's the vendors still had plexiglass shield at the counters. I also seen allot of handicap improvements and easy access if you need that accommodation.

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

    We stopped into this compact museum to get a glimpse of Guelph history. The kind lady at reception went out of her way to detail the museum offerings, the building history and its surroundings. She even tried to find someone who could open the John McCrae House for us as we visited before it’s opening day. Not to be, but we appreciated her efforts. The museum does a nice job of describing the areas industry, natural history and indigenous history in the space it has. A visiting display on fans was quite interesting. The bronze life size + statue of McCrae outside, and the commendation of the man and the poem inside were very moving.

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

    Take a tour of the home plus attend an event. Small and informative. There is a tea party in the gardens in the summers and I have enjoyed the free bagpipes playing outside in the evenings.

    Nice place to visit and not far from big city. Very overcrowded!!!! Keep in mind this!!!
    When i have read all reviews I did not want to go....but my husband said - lets try .....so we did tried our first camping opening season 2021 . It was fantastic weekend since it was first day Ontario Government allowed camping season 2021 to be open. The weather was warm and sunny! We were camping with our RV, so we did not use the park facilities. Nice place- but people have to respect nature - and not to leave garbage.....what we saw people come to enjoy beach....enjoy hike....but all bottles and napkins and food waste left on the beach.....Disgusting!!!!
    Lots of noise and sites are very close to each other with almost zero privacy.
    Keep an eye on road as it is is full of vehicles , especially when you are with kids.
    Saw lots of people were catching fish...looks like good place for fishing.
    We did kayaking and we did swimming....the water was very warm!
    Currently lots of caterpillars , and they are everywhere . It did not bother us as this is part of nature. Mosquitoes were at dawn and at dusk.
    If you like sunsets - they are gorgeous here - and you can enjoy them from the main beach.

    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. .

    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.

    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.

    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
