Parks and Trails in Georgetown 

Halton Hills offers great places to hike and bike. From endless side roads and lines that offer beautiful scenic views, to country biking and hiking in conservation areas. You can explore a different park every weekend and never get tired of the magnificent beauty of this truly inspiring landscape. We did some research and found some of the most popular parks and trails in and around Georgetown and Halton Hills.

DESTINATION PARKS

Georgetown Fairgrounds – Park Ave. and Charles St.

The Georgetown Fairgrounds annually hosts community events and has been an icon in the downtown area for 170 plus years. From the Fall Fair, Highland Games, outdoor concerts to baseball tournaments, there is surely something to entertain any audience. A peaceful location with huge mature trees, walking trails, and a perfect place for enjoying the outdoors right at your doorstep.
