Toogood Pond Park

Reviewed By Liam98 - Unionville

Great Mall with everything you could ever want in a shopping experience. Food court second only to Yorkdale for quality and selection. Arrived at 8.45 only to see most of the spots close to the entrance occupied. Are the employees taking these spots?

A nice modern building at the end of Unionville's historic Main Street. The permanent Varley collection is quite interesting. The special exhibits can vary.... this time it was about communication, which did very little for me. However it is always worthwhile taking the time to look in when in the area.

Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts

Reviewed By 761susies - Toronto, Canada

It is so nice to have a professional theatre venue north of the city WITH PARKING! It's so much easier to navigate this area than downtown Toronto. And it's nice to have big acts come here, yet the atmosphere is cosy and intimate. Beautifully luxurious inside.

I've rented twice from Exclusive sports now from groups of 8+ to a group with just 3 sets - Exclusive Sport Rentals has always come through and was quick, knowledgeable and extremely friendly throughout the whole experience. All the gear was in great shape and they were able to answer many questions I had about the sport itself. Will definitely be renting from here again :)

Whittamore's Farm

Reviewed By KrishS_Traveler - Markham, Canada

For years my family and I enjoyed our summer and fall visits to Whittamore farm. Sadly this is the last year since the farm is closed forever. Over the years, we enjoyed the fresh strawberries, fruits and vegetables grown locally, along with delicious baked goods. Goodbye Whittamore and thank you for the nice memories over the years.

The Markham Pan Am Centre

Reviewed By wasntme58 - Toronto, Canada

I went to see the water polo Pan Am events here. Canada won! The pool is impressive as the 2 outer walls can be moved and the floor can be dropped. I can't wait to see what they do with it when the tournament is over. Of course it's very clean and quite impressive. The score boards can be seen from anywhere in the ample Seating area. There are also gorgeous badminton courts with stadium Seating behind. This is a first class building. Markham will be lucky to inherit it after the games.

I would take my whole family to listen to The Kindred Spirits Orchestra when they are performing at Unionville Main Street and they never disappoint us! Captivating, thrilling, Passionate are just a few words that come to mind when I am listening to them perform.

We were invited to the museum for a children's birthday party. It was an amazing first visit for our family! The kids had an opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt outside, which was run by one of the staff. They had a great time and the parents followed with their cameras. Then they had a quick snack of smores followed by a craft, led by staff, back at the museum. The party ended with pizza and cake. It was a great time for everyone!

Flato Markham Theatre

Reviewed By skaszab2016 - Toronto, Canada

I have been to many Performances, all winners in my book. The theater is mid sized but very personal, allowing the visitor to experience the performance and performers close up and personal. Such a wonderful Entertainment Venue. Full of local artworks too. A+.
