Memorial Park Winter Village
The downtown Bracebridge skating trail at Memorial Park Winter Village is up and running for another season so pack your skates and helmet and head downtown for a great skate. Afterwards, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or a cappuccino from the Camp Muskoka Coffee House or The Pasta Shoppe Bakery & Fine Foods, both within walking distance of the park. If you are looking for the ultimate day of family fun, top it all off with a feature film at the Norwood Theatre, just steps from the skating park.
