With the beautiful Grand River, multiple heritage sites and museums, over 1000 acres of park area, swimming pools and fun splash pads, Brantford has recreation options for everyone. You won't want to miss out on the action packed programming at one of our community centres, Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre or Shellards area.

Catch a fitness class at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre, or spend a leisurely day at Walter Gretzky Municipal Golf Course and Learning Centre. Don't forget to visit Harmony Square for a number of events throughout the year.

Those looking for a bit more adventure will enjoy our 60 km of trails with access along the way to such famous sites as the Bell Homestead National Historic Site, Mohawk Chapel, the only Royal Chapel outside of the British Isles; or our museums and galleries, home to many beautiful works – just to name a few.
