With so many exciting events and attractions, a visit to Barrie is guaranteed fun for kids of all ages! Below are some ideas to help you plan a fun-filled day in Barrie.
AGES 0 TO 5 YEARS OLD
Take the kids to the beach, park and playground at Barrie’s Centennial Beach
. Spend a day watching your kids play in the sand, cool off in Kempenfelt Bay and play for hours on the swings and slides. You and the family can walk, cycle, in-line skate and run around the beautiful paved 6.7 kilometer path that wraps around the Bay. After all that fresh clean air, you will be ready to go for a nap too.
Choose your own adventure with Theatre By The Bay
. You and your family will love the wacky characters including pirates and wizards in 'Adventure Island' and the fact that you get to help tell the story. Perfect for children 3 +. July 8 -16.
Another beloved outing with family and friends is the Elmvale Jungle Zoo
. This is where kids can feed and pet the kid-friendly animals and see them up close. The zoo is not too big and not too small; it is just perfect for families with kids ranged from 0 to 12 years of age (and for us older folks too). You will cherish all the photos and memories of your visit to the Elmvale Zoo for a lifetime.
was made for family fun! Your kids will love visiting Chappell Farms during their Spring and Fall Festivals. Halloween is not the same without a visit to the kid-friendly Boo Barn, Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch. Even mom and dad can get in a good scare at the Haunted Barn or finding their way out of the maze. Don’t forget the camera!
