    Took the greenhouse tour yesterday. What a lovely experience. Our guide Erica was fun and very well versed. Viewing the orchids are worth the trip.
    The gardens have some beautiful spring flowers blooming. Staff were planting summer annuals. There were 2 spots available for the Auto Baron Tour, Danielle was an informative and fun guide!

    Excellent collection dating back to the early 1800's right up to the present. Well displayed and labeled. We were met by a veteran of the Regiment who took us through some of the history. Very knowledgeable and very appreciated.

    The Museum also has one of the largest collections of working military vehicles in Canada

    They also have tank days where you can book rides in a tank.

    Definitely recommended. Good for all ages

    This museum is a lot better than I thought. It’s free to the public. Two floors but it flows into different rooms. Lots of interesting art by new and upcoming artists. My favourite was the gown made of hospital gowns. There is a gift shop. It’s pricey. It’s worth the visit.

    Beautiful park. Well groomed. It’s free to the public. Perfect place for wedding pictures. They have a playground for kids and a creek.

    When that water resort in Cuba is out of your reach...pack up yourself and enjoy the natural waterline Lake Ontario provides. Relax here with your family ANY time of the year. The seasons and scenery change, but the lake is always so beautiful and calming. Take the negativity out of these uncertain times to go admire something steadfast and permanently a pat of Durham. Picnic, and stroll to your hearts contentment on the many trails Oshawa has to discover at its waterfront. I have seen everything at the lakefront..from giant across the sea ships in port, to Canada Day every year. PLEASING for your entire family!

    Beautiful, peaceful place to spend an afternoon. We walked around the edge of the bay.(It was frozen solid!) There were swans out in the bay.

    We stopped here a month or so after they opened and saw the brand-new brewery. Very friendly people, and all the beers in our flight were good. A lot of different packaged and snack options. It's difficult to see if you are coming south from downtown Oshawa.

    This outdoor museum of historical houses is worth seeing. One can wander around the outside for free, but if you want to tour the inside of the houses, you need to purchase a ticket. The purchase point was unclear, so I wandered around the outside.
