PA Day Things To Do

The kids are off school with a PA Day (or is it a D Day?), and you need to find something to do with them. You’ve come to the right place because ActiveParents specializes in fun-for-the-whole-family!


Physical Fun

Check out a local indoor play centre, or better yet, visit one that’s not so local and your kids will think you’ve discovered a fantastic new land!

Walk the Hide and Seek trail at Crawford Lake.

Bowling is the kind of sport that you don’t have to be good at to have a great time! We have all of the alleys in Burlington and beyond here.

Turn the tables on the weather, and let the kids decide if they want to go for a swim, or an indoor skate. Find the times here for Burlington, OakvilleHamilton, and Milton.


Free Family Fun

Dress for the weather and play at a new (to you) park. We love this one in Burlington, and this one in Hamilton, and this one just a short drive away.

Ignore the world and stay home for the PA Day. Fresh baked cookies, snuggles, and a movie sounds delightful, doesn’t it?

Check out the Fairy Tale Fun programming that the Burlington library has planned.

Enjoy a free indoor skate at River Oaks rink, thanks to the City of Oakville and Boston Pizza!

Walk your neighbourhood and find a Little Free Library. Their take-a-book leave-a-book philosophy makes finding a new read for kids or adults easy-peasy!


Right Brain Fun

Drop into an art studio like Medium Art Gallery or Lollipop Art Lounge and get crafty. Make some gifts, or special something for yourself!

Take a trip to the art gallery and see their new exhibits. We love the Art Gallery of Burlington, and the Oakville Galleries.


Left Brain Fun

Visit the library. It’s way more than just book-borrowing. Movies, video games, activity kits, plus a ton of other activities are all waiting for you! Burlington Public Library, Milton Public Library and Oakville Public Library all have fun planned!

Work your skills at freeing yourselves from an Escape Room like Confundrum, Mission Impossible, or Exit Strategy in Burlington!



Fun For The Whole Family

Check out a movie at CineStarz on Brant Street for only $5 a person. Or check out a new release at in Oakville.

Visit a Board Game Cafe in Hamilton like Gameopolis or Mancala Monk.

Get your glow-in-the-dark balls and putt your way through this PA Day at Putting Edge Oakville.



Shop Local

Eat out at one of the restaurants that offer a Kids Eat Free option throughout the week.

Drop into Lakeshore Coffee House for a hot beverage, and drop by Mollycake for ‘The Cookie’ – both stops will not disappoint!

Embrace the great weather and patronize one of the local ice cream shops on our list of Hot Spots for Cool Treats.


We’ve provided some inspiration – but if you have other plans share them with us! Whatever you do, enjoy the day with the family.
