Woodbridge, a large suburban community in the City of Vaughan in Southern Ontario, is one of the most affluent areas to live in the Greater Toronto Area. Formed in the early 1800s, the community celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2007. With its large Italian population, it has some of the region's best Italian restaurants.
Woodbridge Memorial Tower. This was constructed to honor the courage demonstrated by the 26 men from the Woodbridge area who laid down their lives in the First World War, commemorated by a bronze plaque. The tower is of native field stone with a glass dome. The domed beacon light decorated with stonework and small window openings once illuminated the surrounding area at night. Three field guns are also located at the site.
Ontario Soccer Centre. This is a 130,000-square-foot Canadian competitive indoor facility holding three indoor soccer fields. It is also used for lacrosse, rugby, field hockey, lawn bowling, and trade shows.
Kortright Centre for Conservation. In early Spring, follow the "maple trail" that goes around the park and shows how maple trees are tapped for sap and then how the sap is turned into maple syrup the old fashioned way. You can also sample and buy the real maple syrup.
There is a viewing platform to look down onto the creek as well as an Eco center with displays of solar arrays, wind power generators, and an eco-friendly house. You can also take a horse wagon ride and see a magic show.
This is also the perfect place for a natural rustic wedding with the ceremony setting in the cathedral of trees being magical.
