Summer Fun During COVID-19

Summer is here and it's time to have some fun! If you're looking for what's open this summer and some fun activities, we've got you covered to help you enjoy your summer despite the pandemic.


Cool Summer Treats

Summer and ice-cream go hand in hand. In Sault Ste. Marie all ice creameries are open and ready to serve you with extra safety precautions in place. Get your summer fix at Holy Cow in Sault Ste. Marie, just minutes from Pine Allard Properties. While it'll likely be a couple more weeks before Aurora can enter Stage 3, you'll still find many ice creameries open for patio patrons and takeout orders. Enjoy a dipped ice cream cone with all the fixings from Chocolats Favoris, just 7 minutes from Millwell Properties.


Splashing Fun

There are five splash pads open in Aurora, all of which are less than 10 minutes from our Millwell Properties apartments. Each splash pad is open from 10am to 9pm and are inspected and sanitized daily. In Sault Ste. Marie, check out the V.E. Greco Pool and Peter G. Manzo Pool, both of which are open from 1pm to 7pm until Labour Day.


Explore Nature

Now is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy what your city has to offer. In Sault Ste. Marie, you'll find Fort Creek Conservation Area, a 191-acre park with a dam and reservoir, several hiking trails, and plenty of wildlife along the way. And in Aurora, Sheppard's Bush is open again with 65 acres of green space to enjoy. Visitors may use the parking lot Monday to Friday for a maximum of 3 hours between 7am and 7pm.


Patio Dining

Enjoy your warm summer nights out on the patio of your favourite restaurant. In Sault Ste. Marie, enjoy smoked barbeque on the patio at Low & Slow Steakhouse just ten minutes from Willow Properties. Patio dining is also allowed in Aurora, so go enjoy a delicious meal at Filly & Co., just minutes from our Millwell Properties. Their patio is open from 11:30am to 10pm. For any patio dining, it is strongly recommended to call ahead and book a reservation to ensure social distancing orders are maintained.


Get out and enjoy your summer, but make sure you're staying safe while you do it!
