Learn more in today’s post, compiled by the blog team at your preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel.
Grand River Raceway
One of the most popular events happening on the Civic Holiday near Guelph is Industry Day at the Grand River Raceway (7445 Wellington County Road 21). The headliner event of the season, you will not want to miss the Battle of Waterloo or the Battle of the Belles — two of the Raceway’s signature events. With $300,000 at stake, this is sure to be a high-energy event for racing fans from across the province and around the country. The Raceway is a manageable 20-minute drive from Park Towers Apartments (131 Raymond Street).
Tea and Tours
Experience the rich history of McCrae House (108 Water Street), located less than a 10-minute walk from Terrace Towers Apartments (125 Raymond Street), over the Civic Holiday. Beginning June 28th, this local museum is hosting Tea and Tours on Tuesday through Sunday from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. After your Civic Holiday tour, sit back and relax with a cup of tea, a scone and the beautiful backyard gardens as your backdrop.
Take advantage of the balmy summertime weather by spending the Civic Holiday outdoors. Head to Riverside Park (709 Woolwich Street), one of Guelph’s finest, for a picnic, pedal boats, a game of baseball and a scenic walk along the river. The park is practically across the street from Driftwood Apartments (689 Woolwich Street), less than a five-minute walk away.
Happy Civic Holiday! The blog team at Williams and McDaniel hopes that you have a wonderful extended weekend close to home. For more information about our Guelph apartments, please visit our website today.
