Week 2 tips and motivation: Explore the City's parks

Welcome to Week 2!


Now that you’re off to a good start and finding your groove, let’s look at some more ways to get out and get active. This week's theme is to explore the City's parks.


Did you know? The City maintains 300 hectares of scenic park space, all for you to enjoy! The City’s Parks and Rec Finder is a great tool to learn about nearby parks and see the amenities offered. You can also search by amenity, so if you’re looking for something specific (like sports fields, community gardens or splash pads), you can search Barrie’s parks to find the location to suit your needs!


You can also explore two of the City's parks, Sunnidale Park and Military Heritage Park, digitally and learn about them before you visit by using the interactive Community Parks Map. Did you know that Sunnidale Park was once a golf course? Until 1970, Sunnidale Park was the home of the Barrie Country Club.


Please enjoy the City’s parks and waterfront safely, and view our guide to safe outdoor activities during COVID-19 before heading out.


So, what are you waiting for? Take some time this week to enjoy our parks, and let us know if you do by sharing a photo or story!
