Coffee shops, a pharmacy, craft shop, banking, great restaurants and so much more await!

Greenboro Park and Community Centre

The perfect place to take a stroll with the kids and play outdoors, Greenboro park offers plenty of open space. It includes a soccer field, baseball field, and other amenities, and many locals like to come by with their pooches for a game of fetch. There’s also the nearby Greenboro Community Centre for even more things to do! It comes complete with a large playground area for the kids, a pool, and plenty of parking space. Without a doubt, this is one of the most popular places to hang out in the area throughout the year.

Fawn Meadow Park

For something even closer to home, consider checking out Fawn Meadow Park! Located right beside the Deerfield Village 2 development area, it’s a sprawling, inviting place to take the kids or yourself for some time in the great outdoors. The park includes several nice touches for residents including a splash area to cool off during the summer, a giant sandpit, benches, playground equipment, and a fantastic soccer field that’s always prepped for a game or two. The parklands are nicely maintained throughout the year and provide a safe, comfortable environment — it’s the perfect complement to Deerfield Village 2.

Sky Zone Trampoline Park

Complete with indoor trampolines with freestyle bouncing, the facility also provides dodgeball, fitness programs and much more. There’s also a really great play area for the kids!

A visit to Walkley Bowling Centre is something that can’t be missed out on. Offering eight-pin bowling that’s perfect for all ages and experience levels, it’s a fun place to hang out with friends, snack on a burger and fries, and aim for those pins! The centre also offers dart boards and the Fireside Pub for a great way to unwind after the work week.

Midway Family Fun Park

Bumper cars? Check. Fairground-style games and attractions? You’ve got it – and so much more!

From the ball pits and indoor jungle gyms to climbing walls, arcade games, slides, a miniature railway and so much more, there’s just no shortage of excitement and fun here! Stop by for a few minutes and end up staying the afternoon.

Greenbelt Riding School
