Things to do in Kitchener

Go on a nature walk at Victoria Park

To get your day started right, go to a park first thing in the morning. Take a walk or jog around one of the city's many parks, or simply sit and admire the lush foliage. Kitchener's Victoria Park is the city's oldest park and is well worth a visit. The park is a wonderful spot to spend the entire day, and an interesting fact about it is that the same folks who developed New York's Central Park also worked on this one. The clock tower is one of the park's most recognizable features, and there's also a beautiful lake and some wonderful flower gardens. This park is ideal for spending time with your family and enjoying a picnic.

Take your kids to THEMUSEUM!
