Tourism in Durham Region
Mr. Speaker, this week is tourism week in Canada, and I would like to invite Canadians to join the Durham Region in all we have to offer this summer.
We have arts. The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington is celebrating our artists, and there is the META4 Gallery of contemporary craft in Port Perry.
We have sports, from Wooden Sticks and Coppinwood, world class courses in the north, to Kedron Dells in the south. We have Treetop Eco-Adventure Park, allowing people to do obstacles on the well-known Oak Ridges Moraine.
We have history, with Scugog Shores Historical Museum, Bowmanville Museum, and Lucy Maud Montgomery House, where she penned 11 of her novels.
Kids will love Durham for the animals: Bowmanville Zoo, the Oshawa Zoo, and Exotic Cat World, some of the best places in Canada for seeing animals.
We have wine: the Ocala Orchard Farm Winery and Archibald’s winery, and one can match this with some of our world-class produce from the White Feather Farms, Pingle’s Farm Market, Watson Farms, and Knox Pumpkin Farm.
I invite Canadians to come to Durham this summer, enjoy all we have to offer, and have a safe and happy summer.
