Inside you will find all kinds of opportunities for you and your family to get out and enjoy all that Aurora has to offer when the snow starts to fly. 100 John West Way, Box # 1000 Aurora, Ontario L4G 6J1 Tel: (905) 727-1375 www.aurora.ca Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast or prefer your recreation indoors, there’s plenty to see and do in Aurora this winter. For example, we will once again be featuring our “Aurora’s Borealis” at Town Park. Thanks in part to the generous support of our corporate partners; Town Park is turned into a winter wonderland with thousands of LED lights strung through the trees. It makes for a breath-taking sight for those who come out to skate under the lights throughout the winter months. For those that enjoy grabbing a toboggan and hitting a hill, the Town has four dedicated areas at the following parks for tobogganing: Fleury, Machell, Lambert Willson and Copland. If indoor activities are more to your liking, head on over to the Aurora Family Leisure Complex for a fitness class or game of squash, the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex for a leisure swim or browse the many pages of this guide for a program that interests you. No matter what you do for enjoyment this winter in Aurora, please stay safe and have fun. Mayor Geoffrey Dawe Sincerely, Mayor Geoffrey Dawe Members of Council...

The forecast for this upcoming winter season is snow, snow and more snow! Planning activities in advance is the key to having an active winter season which should make this upcoming winter just as enjoyable as any other season. The Parks and Recreation Services Department can help Aurora residents plan many activities this winter. Remember that our Parks Deparment maintains four outdoor ice rinks, typically from January to March (weather depending) and these outdoor rinks are located at Ada Johnson Park, Confederation Park, Machell Park and Town Park. We also offer tobogganing at various outdoor parks in Aurora which are listed on the Town of Aurora website (www.aurora.ca). Our Annual Santa Under the Stars Parade to be held on Saturday, November 26th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm is one of our most popular events. The parade runs on Yonge Street - starting at Orchard Heights Boulevard and ending at Murray Drive. If you’re looking for a Christmas “Stocking Stuffer” idea, why not consider giving the gift of health by purchasing a gift certificate to Club Aurora Fitness Centre for that special person in your life. These gift certificates can be purchased at the Aurora Family Leisure Complex. We have many activities planned on Ontario’s Family Day holiday (Monday, February 20th) for the Town’s Annual Family Day - Arctic Adventure like outdoor public skating, live entertainment, snow shoeing, dog sled rides and much more. Winter is an exhilarating season, so make sure to get out and get active! Allan D.

At present the Town maintains approximately 25 kilometers of trails. Come out and enjoy a leisurely hike through the natural valley land setting of mixed forests, meadows and wetland habitats of the Holland River Valley Trail, designated in 2000 as part of the regional Nokiidaa Trail. This trail is Aurora’s longest trail corridor stretching from Vandorf in the south (just west of Bayview Avenue) all the way up to St. John’s Sideroad at Industrial Parkway North. The trail corridor links municipal facilities such as the Town Hall, the Senior’s Centre and the Aurora Leisure Complex as well as the Aurora Community Arborteum, Sheppards Bush and Lambert Willson Park. Another significant trail corridor is the Willow Farm, Lakeview Trail system, a trail linking parks and linear open space corridors within the forested hills of St. Andrews in northwest Aurora. The topography is very undulating as the trail rises up to one of the highest points elevation within Aurora. All Aurora trails are considered multi-use, with the primary focus being pedestrian hikers. Opportunities also exist for cross country skiers. The majority of our trails are compact gravel surfaces with some asphalt sections through neighbourhood and community parks. Please note that our trails are not groomed or maintained during winter months, and conditions vary widely. Surface conditions can change dramatically during the winter to create potentially hazardous hiking and skiing conditions. All users are advised to respect other trail users, to stay on designated trails and to exercise caution at all times. Aurora Adopt-A-Park - Your Chance to GROW With the Community!
