Bocce Courts
A perfect pastime for a sunny day, the game of Bocce ball is suited for players of all ages. Bocce ball, an ancient game which most closely resembles bowling, involves a skilled hand and the right amount of strategy. Bocce is played between two players or two teams of up to four players on a team.

Volleyball
The volleyball court, located beside the soccer field, is a great pastime for mixed groups of all ages and skill levels. Ideal for large groups, you should have at least six players on two teams for a true game, but any number will do for a recreational game.

Whether you're learning the basics or engaging in a friendly competitive match, volleyball is an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors while having fun with friends and family. Please visit the Sports & LeisureDome to pick up a volleyball.

Nature Trails
Experience the quiet tranquility of the countryside while enjoying a stroll on our two beautiful nature trails. Lining the winding Nottawasaga River, the trails offer walkers, joggers, bird-watchers and snowshoers an opportunity to enjoy the splendour of nature.

Each path begins at the first hole of the Valley golf course. The gently winding paths lead you alongside the manicured golf greens treating you to a picturesque landscape of mature cedar trees and various native varieties of plants and flowers.

The Valley Trail is an easy 2.8 kilometre limestone trail that is best suited for a quick recreation hike or a leisurely stroll. Comfortable benches line the trail offering a space to rest on and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The Briar Hill Trail is a moderate 3.5 kilometres roundtrip trail with a more challenging terrain. A winding path of gravel and limestone travels along several elevation changes, proving to be an excellent trail for hiking.
