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 :)

Promenade Shopping Centre

Reviewed By Alan S - Vaughan, Canada

The Promenade has been around since the 80"s but has really never fully caught on.
Over the years it has had interesting tenants but today it is saddled with Sears as the anchor. Sears is a total disaster and drags the entire place down.
Now, with new owners who are committed to find a formula that will work, there is hope for the future. My suggestion is to boot Sears and attract Simons or a small Saks. They will both draw.
Hopefully in the next few years the mall will be improved.

Sanctuary Day Spas

Recently renovated with a sophisticated European decor, the Sanctuary Day Spa in Vaughan is the city's premier day spa, an urban retreat of the highest standard with a full range of spa services. Conveniently located on Rutherford Rd. Close to Vaughan Mills Shopping Mall and Paramount Canada's Wonderland.

a lovely service. a bit cold in the room. I was not crazy about the setup of the facial beds...head-to-head, as opposed to side-by-side. the point of being together in the same room was to spend time with each other and enjoy the service. we couldn't see one another in the setup of the beds. so kind of pointless in that regard. but the service was good.

This is a good mall for inexpensive lady's apparel, shoes, and children's apparel. Unfortunately the selection of men's stuff and non-apparel items has become rather weak. Outdoorsy types might enjoy the Bass Pro shop. Probably not up to the level of the Mills format malls in the States. What is interesting is that there are two sets of outbuildings which are somewhat more localized in format - one set has stores selling furniture and home improvement remodeling, the other is a mixed bag but has some locally owned ethnic restaurants if you don't want food court food.

Reptilia Zoo and Education Centre

Reptilia is a state of the art 25,000 square foot facility complete with large exhibits showcasing hundreds of different reptiles and amphibians, from giant pythons to massive crocodiles and king cobras. Watch our Cast at work in the nursery, our food preparation area and the venomous workshop! Each day there are a variety of opportunities to interact with our animals and learn from our exceptional Cast Members during our shows, tours and animal feedings! With four reptile feedings every day, free live theatre shows or zoo keeper tours and a chance to interact with the reptiles and the Zoo Cast, Reptilia is a destination worth visiting. Reptilia's Zoo is the first of its kind and it adds another destination to Vaughan's already growing list of attractions.

I jokingly told my son that in spite of the name “This is not a center that educates reptiles”, he rolled his eyes and replied, “Oh really, what was your first clue?” This was our first visit here and while the experience at Reptilia was alright, it was also our last visit here. When I was young I had newts, geckos and African frogs so I was a little curious and a bit interested in checking this place out. Although they do have a very knowledgeable staff and a variety of reptiles on display, personally I wouldn’t call it a zoo and I feel the admission price is a bit steep. At the end of the exhibit there is a cool photo opportunity with a couple of the residents and a live theatre area. Like all attractions you exit the exhibit area into a gift shop souvenir store. While they do not sell reptiles, you can buy books, tanks, food etc. and -shirt or other novelties to remember your visit. If you are into reptiles than you will defiantly enjoy this place otherwise you will most likely find it mildly interesting at best.

Dufferin Clark Library

Reviewed By GrantFamilyToronto - Toronto

I always find the staff here to be both friendly and helpful. This branch has a great variety of resource material and like all Libraries what they don’t have you can request from another branch and have it sent over for pick-up. The library is clean, quite and well maintained, but the difference maker here is the courteous staff who are always welcoming and glad to assist you.

We go to the park at least once a year, usually with friends or relatives. Every year the experience is getting more disappointing. From long lineups, to overpriced extras (food, beverages, special rides passes etc.). Also facilities are getting quite rundown, dirty and full of insects and other animals. Bees and wasps are permanent residents all over the park due to people spilling food and beverages everywhere.
This year we visited with a larger group of friends some of whom have children between ages 7 and 11. We decided to go early on a Saturday in order to avoid lineups and to be able to make the most of our full day outing. We queued for the parking over an hour and than another half hour at the main gates even though we had tickets. We already knew which rides we wanted to go first and that is where we headed just to find another lineup. Then we faced further delays because of the large group of "fast laners" that kept coming back to the same ride over and over. Yes, we understand they paid more than $85 for that privilege, but that is not fair to other people who could barely afford to get a discounted pass for their family. Then there were the usual groups that would join their friends that were ahead in the line so that they did not have to go to the back of the line. We witnessed more than 10 people joining the queue way ahead of us saying the usual phrase "we are together". Some of the rides were not even functioning properly and they had to stop them in order to get someone to inspect them. So basically in 5 hours we managed to get on 4 rides.
After that we headed to get some lunch and that was another ordeal, another long queue. They did not have half of the items listed on their menus and we ended up getting pizzas and fries. Then we faced another queue to find Seating. Lots of outdoor seats were occupied by people that were not even having a meal. There was also a family that had occupied 4 tables with 2 people sitting at each table and when we asked them if they could all move to one table so that we can at least have kids sit down and have their meal. They told us they were waiting for other friends to arrive, which never showed up during the hour we spent there. Some of us ended up eating our food standing. One of the kids had their meal knocked down by a reckless adult, so our friend had to line up again over a half of hour to re-order the meal.
It was a hot day and we all had to keep hydrated. We must have spent hundreds of dollars on bottles of water as a group.
After lunch we did another ride and decided to head to the Water Park. Again more queues, but a little less than on the other rides. However water looked very dirty and there was all sort of stuff floating in the lazy river. Most of us decided to get out of the water and sunbathe instead. Kids loved the water rides, but we were a bit worried that they might catch some bacteria due to poor hygiene. Well, never mind the bacteria. One of the friend's kids got stung by a bee and had a very bad allergic reaction. We all left in a rush and at the exit we notified the staff of the bee problem. They did not really care. They only care about not allowing people to bring their own food, and making sure that everyone buys the food within the park at very high prices and poor quality.

Putting Edge Vaughan

Staying at home or going out to the movies is easy. But we believe that change is good and comfortable is overrated. Especially when there’s a fun and imaginative world that exists when we dare to go over the edge at Putting Edge Vaughan.

A nice glow-in-the-dark mini putt course. Very well kept, with good challenging holes. The course can get backed up at times, so you find yourself waiting at holes for your turn. Maybe space the tee times out a bit further. Otherwise, a great place for a family to spend an hour or so. Small arcade in which to spend money, get tickets, and spend them on trinkets.

Our group of 11 spanned from ages 9-49 and we had such a blast! Some of us were a little apprehensive, but in the end, every single person had fun. We will return for certain! They are friendly, organized, accommodating and the location is clean and convenient. We all had a great workout and created fond memories!
