Local Government Office
“Hidden pond is a beautiful place with lots of attractions for young and old. For families with younger kids, they have a nice playground, the nature center has animals and is indoors for very rainy days, staff on call to ask questions to, and for people of all ages, gorgeous trails. You can book a party room for some occasions such as a birthday party. The party room is very large, making it easy to easily host larger groups (we had 25 kids and 20 adults), they offer tables and chairs and two activities led by their staff: we chose an animal talk where kids learned about 4 animals and had an opportunity to ask questions/ touch a couple of them. We also chose pond netting which the kids love”

Gym / Fitness Centre
“This is a state of the art fitness center with a pool. They offer free one-day passes. If you want to work out during your stay, the price after your first free day is very reasonable.”

Shopping Mall
American Restaurant

“After having the impossible meatloaf I wanted to find a restaurant that served the impossible burger. This burger is so big, it takes two hands to eat it. It comes with french fries and under $10. Parking is convenient it's in a shopping mall and they have a separate take out section, a favorite place to call in dinner, after a long day at work, plus they are open to 11 pm. Perfect and the burger (vegetarian) It looks like, it taste like, and it cuts like "real" hamburger. If I did not know it was vegetarian, I would not have believed you. I've been there twice this week, and never have been able to finish a whole burger. Highly recommend.”
