Milton's water spot

Family Outdoor Movie Nights on Friday nights, August 11 - September 1, 2017!

For a successful outing in the Milton region, I recommend including a swim at Kelso Conservation Area. The beach sits by a grassy park with lots of shade. When we visited, length of the beach was covered with long transparent wires hanging ten metres over our heads, to prevent the birds from landing. The sand was clean! Expect hordes by lunch time so you might want to show up earlier. Kelso is known for its series of trails for serious mountain bikers. I was told that you can hike all the way to the top of the escarpment in less than one hour with bigger kids. The panoramic view is amazing and we're supposed to find an old quarry with fossils along the trail! Just never got to do that myself...

They offer movie nights on Fridays in August. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and snacks!
