Challenge your detective skills and put more steps on your feet completing the Waterdown Village Crack the QR Code Spring Scavenger Hunt. Lace up your sneakers, grab your cellphone and head out on a hunt for QR code clues that will take you throughout Waterdown Village, discovering new businesses and enjoying spring air and temperatures. You could win a spring gift basket or one of three chocolate gift packs. Find more details and learn how to start the hunt here.

Brighten the mood with spring colours. Enjoy the crocuses and cherry blossoms popping up on Waterdown Village streets and bring the colour inside with a visit to one of our local flower or home/gift shops. Nothing says spring like a bunch of tulips or a fresh spring décor item. Stroll the downtown to see what’s new in shops or search for a specific destination using the ‘Find a Business’ directory.

Bruce Trail Marker
Enjoy your March Break staycation with a family hike on the nearby Bruce Trail. Do a little bird watching. Listen to the rushing waters at Smokey Hollow. Play a game of ‘eye spy’. If two-wheeling is more your thing, get the bikes out and get back in the saddle. Too wet outside? Move the action inside and enjoy the thunder of falling pins at Waterdown Lanes Bowling. Check out more ‘Things to Do’ here.

Learn something new. Who says you can’t teach dawgs of any age new tricks? Lifelong learning is the key to growing and staying young. Sign up for a blanket-making workshop, take a spin on the pottery wheel, kick it up in one of our dance, fitness, yoga or martial arts studios. There are so many possibilities to avoid screen time, stay active and enjoy lived experiences in Waterdown Village.

‘Bloom’ with live theatre. Secure tickets to the Village Theatre’s spring production of Andrew Morton’s ‘Bloom’. This play follows 15-year old Daniel in the wake of his father’s death  as he starts helping an urban gardener who is revitalizing abandoned city lots. Not just plants start to grow. Evening and matinee performances happen at Memorial Hall at the end of April and beginning of May. Find Village Theatre details here.
