Visiting a farm is an enriching and rewarding experience, plus it’s a whole lot of fun. If you’ve ever wanted to get up close to an alpaca, learn how to shear a sheep or snuggle up to a goat you can do all that and more here.

It’s like a real life treasure hunt and it’s an amazing way to get engage the entire family outdoors! Just pop in the coordinates and see if you can find a hidden cache. In Lennox & Addington we are one of Canada’s premier geocaching destinations with about 1,500 geocaches hidden here.

There’s no shortage of the fun things you can do on the water and in L&A we have plenty of lakes so you’re guaranteed to find one to explore close by. Spend a great day fishing, boating, paddling or even just enjoying the shoreline and learning how to skip stones on the water.

Pack your beach gear and lets go! With an abundance of lakes in the area, you know you’ll also find some great places to swim. A few notable spots are: Bon Echo Provincial Park, Sand  Beach Wetlands Conservation Area and UEL Campground, but there’s plenty more!


For an ultimate family adventure head to a nearby campground and enjoy the great outdoors. We have a few great places where you can set up your tent: United Empire Loyalist Heritage Centre & Park, Pickerel Park and Bon Echo Provincial Park.

If you’ve ever wondered what the night sky looked like over a hundred years ago, we’ve got you covered. The Dark Sky Viewing Area offers unobstructed views of the sky without light pollution getting in the way. It’s an incredible experience to see the brilliance of the sky lit up with a zillion twinkling stars.

Learning can be fun! In L&A we have a variety of museums that will engage your kids and allow them to learn about a variety of things in an interactive and fun way. Check out The Museum of Lennox & Addington for special programming and events all geared to engage your little ones.

Pick your own berries and choose the perfect pumpkin at our local orchards. Your kids will discover just how much sweeter the fruit tastes when it’s fresh and local. Plus, many of our orchards offer fun things for your kids to do with events and even a corn maze.
