Last-Minute Family Day Fun in Angus

Happy Family Day Angus!

If you live in the Pine River / Angus area and are planning to spend today with your family – but you haven’t planned anything yet, and aren’t sure quite what to do yet – then you’re in the right place! Here are some of our favourite family-friendly activities that you can get out and do today, no prep or planning required:

Family Day in Angus


Explore the Great Outdoors 

If your family is the outdoors type, then today’s a great opportunity to take advantage of your time together and to go on an adventure. Pine River is in such a great location – we’re practically surrounded by incredible parks, conservations areas, and trails. The Minesing Wetlands Conservation Area is just minutes away and lets you cross-country ski or snowshoe your way along the Ganaraska, Trans Canada and McKinnon trails. If you enjoy (or would like to try) ice fishing, today’s a great day: it’s one of just two weekends all year that the Ontario government designates as license-free.

Hit the Slopes 

Barrie’s Snow Valley Ski Resort is our favourite local ski hill – after all, it’s just a 15 minute drive away! This is a great place to learn to ski or snowboard, with many classes and lesson programs. They also have snow tubing, which is an exciting family favourite that anyone can do. If you’ve never tried snow tubing, you’re in for a treat.

Attend a Nature Festival 

The nearby Tiffin Centre for Conservation is running a Family Day Nature Festival today with free admission from 10am-3pm. The day includes a kid-friendly assortment of outdoor recreation workshops and demos, skating on the pond, snowshoeing, kick-sledding and a scavenger hunt. This is a great option if you have young children who enjoy outdoor adventures and have some energy to burn. Remember to bring your skates.

Go Skating Skating is a fun activity that the whole family will enjoy, whether they’re seasoned hockey players and figure skaters or wobbly-ankled beginners. The Angus Recreation Centre opens its outdoor skating pads to the public on Mondays from 3-6pm (see the full schedule here).

Create Your Own Adventure 

Perhaps there’s something unique that your family loves doing together: cooking a feast of your favourite family recipes, doing crafts, or playing a giant game of Monopoly. Embrace your family’s individuality, and choose one of your favourite activities to make Family Day a fun and memorable day.

What are your plans for the day? Happy Family Day, and we hope you enjoy!
