The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
If it's sunny and it's Sunday, venture down to Beautiful Joe Park and enjoy a guided tour with a volunteer from the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society. The informative walking tour takes approximately 20 minutes and you will learn about:
- Canada's most famous dog
- the Canadian author who made him famous
- the history of this unique park and the society and community that made it all happen
The Sunny Sunday Tours occur on the quarter hour - 12:15, 12:45, 1:15 and 1:45 - and only if it's sunny (not raining). The terrain is level and several benches are available throughout the park as well as at the picnic pavilion.
Speaking of picnic .... why not bring a lunch and spend some time in historic Beautiful Joe Park!
The tours are free, but donations are gratefully accepted online to the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society (a registered charity) or directly to your tour-guide.
