Things to do

Dad with childAs part of your “County Experience” we offer many activities for your enjoyment no matter what time of the year you choose to visit us. In the Spring we have a bird¬†observatory not too far from us where you can join our local naturalist as he conducts spring banding operations, guided walks and tours. For more information go to.. www.peptbo.ca

Summer offers all kinds of warm weather activities including swimming, surfing, fishing or just enjoying the many beaches we have to offer here in the “County” After a day at the beach why not visit our drive in movie theatre and enjoy your choice of¬† movie. We are one of the few drive in theatres that can boast two screens. A real blast from the past! When you return back to Swingate Gardens after your adventures, don’t forget to pick up the marshmallows to toast when you relax around the fire pit.

As we approach fall you can still enjoy the beaches if you prefer a quieter atmosphere. There are many days when it is still warm enough to swim or laze in the sun. This is also a great time to be checking out the fall produce at the many local roadside stands. We are very proud of the huge variety of produce available. Don’t forget to stock up before you leave to go home. Oh, and did I mention, do remember to bring your camera and spare batteries as we have some of the most beautiful fall colours you could wish to see, and some of the sunsets over the water are to die for! A real photographer’s paradise.

Winter has it’s own charm here in the “County” We have several “Winterfest” activities in the area, including, curling, bicycle races to name just a few of the fun things to do. All of them on the ice of course!

Cross country skiing and snow mobile trails are abundant in the area, allowing you to see parts of the “County” most people don’t know exist.

Of course, when you return from your exploring adventures you can curl up at Swingate Gardens with a good book and maybe enjoy a glass of local wine.
