Spring is in the air and there’s no better time to get outdoors and enjoy the warm weather. With fragrant, blossoming fruit trees lining the streets and a wide-range of amenities ready for you to enjoy, The Orchards is a community that hits its stride in spring. Come experience this fun, colourful community with just the right balance of relaxation and play, creating one of the best places to call home.

Meticulously designed to incorporate nature

Every year at this time, The Orchards undergoes a magnificent transformation, seeming to wake-up from the dreariness of winter and blossoming into a bright, vibrant community. The wide variety of floral and fruit trees come to life with a brilliant display of colour and fragrance. You’ll find fruit trees – from crabapples to cherries – lining their namesake streets and occupying every corner. A community garden? Of course, we have that, but we’ve taken it to the next level with a full apple orchard. Best of all, every homeowner is gifted a blooming fruit tree right in their own front yard. Not only do you have the beauty of nature right outside your front door, but you’re surrounded by expansive green spaces, parks, scenic panoramic views, and wetlands nearby. Take it all on one of the convenient walking paths that link everything together.

Countless opportunities to have fun

The Orchards is a community that never stops finding new ways to make every day more fun. The best place to start? The Club House. This 12,000 square foot community club house provides flex and banquet rooms perfect for any event. Outside in the eight-acre park, you’ll find a playground, a spray park, outdoor basketball courts, tennis courts, and fire bowls. In true Canadian spirit, the spray park and basketball courts transform into an NHL-sized hockey/pleasure rink in the winter. There are also many seasonal and monthly events designed by the Resident’s Association including book clubs, hip hop classes for kids, virtual wine tastings, and more. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget your furry friend! Construction is underway on a new dog park which is set to open later this year so all your family members will have something to love at The Orchards. In the meantime, enjoy one of the puppy play days where you can learn things like the basics of grooming or some new tricks and games.
