Summer may feel like the most welcoming of the seasons in Waterdown Village. It’s that time of year our streets come alive with the colour of blue skies, happy flowers and bright patio umbrellas. Sunny smiles abound and everyone – from business staff to downtown visitors – seems to have just a little more pep in their step.
5 Things we love about summer in Waterdown Village
1. The Waterdown Farmers’ Market
Start your Saturday mornings visiting farmers, artisans and craft-batch producers. Pick up fruits and vegetables harvested straight from the fields. Enjoy a morning coffee or midday snack in the new food court area while listening to tunes of local buskers. Crack a farm-fresh egg or grill up a locally-grown and made sausage. The Waterdown Farmers’ Market has something for everyone.
2. Local Shops
Follow your Market morning with a stroll through town where you can browse for one-of-a-kind gifts, home décor items, books, outdoor accessories, building materials, wine, foodstuffs, women’s clothing and so much more. Peruse our directory to Find a Business and discover everything the Village offers.
3. Dining Alfresco
Enjoy a leisurely lunch, a thirst quenching pint or an intimate and romantic meal. So many wonderful local patios festooned with hanging baskets and patio lanterns. Delicious food, great atmosphere – and several within easy walking or cycling distance of Waterdown neighbourhoods.
4. Meeting New Friends
Summer is a great time to introduce yourself to neighbours and talk over the fence. Or spark up a conversation at the Post Office or local patio. We’re super excited to welcome neighbours and newcomers to a special event on Saturday July 22 for an inclusive afternoon of music and dance in Celebration of CommUNITY. Visit Waterdown Village (outdoor area behind Memorial Hall and the Ontario EarlyOn buildings on Dundas Street) for FREE family fun.
5. Staycation Weekends
Home is a great place to be when you don’t want to fight cottage-country traffic. There are lots of Things to Do in our own backyard – from hiking the Bruce Trail, cycling, bowling, building out a backyard paradise, spa-ing it up, taking an art class, sipping some bubbles… You Can Have It All in Waterdown Village.
