    I have been taking my kids to Joeys World in Bowmanville since they were 1 years old. My Kids now are 3 and 5 and have an absolute amazing time at Joeys World every time an usually we stay for about 3 hours on average and the kids beg me to stay longer.

    I have taken the kids to all of the play places in Durham Region several times and Joeys World is by far the BEST ! .

    Best for age range of between 2 and 12 years old

    Separate play area for kids 3 and under.

    The management and staff are excellent

    The location is perfect and the play place is always clean.

    Huge Play Structure
    Rock Wall Climbing
    Archery for kids
    SkyTrekking

    There is a snack bar with lots of food and drink options.

    I find the prices of entrance and food to be very reasonable.

    Very busy on weekends, rainy days and in the winter and even sometimes reaches capacity which goes to show how popular this venue is for kids.

    There is lots of chairs, tables and couches including 2 paid massage chairs for adults to hang out comfortably while watching kids play.

    Joeys World also hosts birthday parties with a wide range of prices for smaller or larger groups.

    Joeys world is moving into a larger facility just down the street.

    It would be nice for the new location to have a large jumpy castle if room allows for that. Hopefully new location has more parking space as the current location is tight for finding a parking spot on those busy days.

    Thanks for giving my kids a clean safe place to play on the not so nice weather days :-)

    During Covid I wasn't expecting too much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Just stopped by for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Very clean and lots of space between the tables for social distancing. We ordered 2 samples the Roberta Blondar a very crisp light beer with no after taste and Eastern Promises another light beer with fruity undertones of passion fruit. This wasn't my husbands cup of tea but he also thoroughly enjoyed the Roberta Blondar. The brewery has a eclectic rustic theme. Lots of decor to enjoy. Staff was very friendly and kept the brewery very clean!!! Would have given 5 stars but it was hard to locate behind the building.

    This is a most delightful experience with staff in period costume & the house beside the museum decorated as it would have been then. We spend 5 months in the area & exhibitions change regularly, so we attend often!

    I came in shopping for a new everyday necklace
    Meg greeted me by name and helped me pick out a beautiful SS heart necklace with my birthstone in the middle
    Also greeted and chatted with Carrie and Janet Hopper
    You feel like family when you shop at this amazing shop in historic downtown bowmanville!!!

    We visited this place last night for the first time on our way to the port hope drive in. We have visited the courtyard in courtice previously so we're excited to try this location as well. We were seated comfortably right away and received excellent service from Rachael. We had wing specials to start followed by the special fajitas and chicken curry poutien. All were reasonable considering the low price. We found the value excellent. We would definitely try here again if we are in the area.
