What parent doesn’t want a cool photo of their kid feeding a chipmunk or a bird? (hint: every parent wants this 🙂 ) and so Cherry Hill Gate delivers!
Chipmunks, birds, beautiful tall trees, a nice stroller friendly trail, and a scenic boardwalk await you at Cherry Hill Gate.
A fun Burlington activity for toddlers, kids and the whole family
The trails here are very scenic and just the right length for small kids in tow. It’s stroller friendly, but the first hill, right inside the entrance, is a bit steep (easier down than up J). We’ve taken our stroller here the past few years and never had a problem.
To get the most fun out of this trip, you absolutely must bring a big bag of bird seed. To get the birds and chipmunks to eat from your hand, just grab some bird seed, and hold out your arm. Wait a few moments and …voila!
A hidden gem in Burlington
Cherry Hill what? Is the most frequent question I get when I mention this place. It’s somewhat of a hidden gem tucked in between the Burlington/Hamilton border. It’s part of Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) and is located at the intersection of Plains Rd W and Botanical Dr.
The inspiration for this blog came from no longer wanting to spend a ton of time searching all over for fun/unique/cheap etc stuff to do with my kids. I had so many other things to do in the evening (House of Cards isn’t gonna watch itself 😉
Occasionally I would stumble upon a list of some activities but they lacked reviews and any of the details I needed to determine if the place is worth it.
What I really wanted was one central spot where I could find fun activities to do with my kids in my area, AND a parent’s review with all the inside details. So when I couldn’t find this, I decided to create my own space. I figured if I wanted this info then maybe other parent s would be interested too!
And so Weekend Fun with Kids was born.
My focus is on the Halton/Hamilton ON areas, but I’ll include reviews for activities we do outside of this area as well.
I would love to hear your comments and suggestions on what to include in these reviews. Please connect with me anytime and let me know what info you wish you had about a place before making the go/no go decision.
