Haldimand County summer Playbook for recreation, leisure and culture now available
Haldimand County’s Playbook, its guide for all things summer programming, activities and experiences, is now available online or at the Cayuga Administration Building, library branches and County museums.
The Playbook includes information about registering for summer aquatics, week-long recreation and museum camps, heritage and culture presentations and library programming.
New this year, the County is offering youth and adult pickleball programs. Participants can learn the basics of one of North America’s fastest-growing sports, or build their skills with intermediate clinics. Sessions take place in Dunnville Lions Park.
The Playbook also highlights non-registered recreation options for residents to enjoy at their leisure, such as parks, trails, pools, and splash pads. Many county parks and greenspaces include amenities like skate parks, ball diamonds, tennis/pickleball and multi-use courts, and picnic areas, offering a wide variety of recreation opportunities for all interests. For walkers and cyclists, Haldimand offers more than 40 km of off-road pathways and trails and hundreds of kilometres of on-road cycling routes throughout the county and along the Grand River.
For those looking to explore the farthest reaches of the County, the Haldimand GeoTour challenges adventurers of all ages to find twenty geocaches stashed throughout the community. Rated the second-most-popular geocaching experience in southwestern Ontario in 2021, the GeoTour includes a specially-designed geocoin for anyone who completes the entire tour. For a more leisurely pace, the PATH (Public Art Tour Haldimand) offers residents and visitors a county-wide route of more than 25 handmade wooden paddles painted by local artists.
