Canada's Wonderland

Canada’s Wonderland is a 134-hectare (330-acre) theme park loaded with fun and thrills for all ages. The country's first major theme park – and its largest – Canada’s Wonderland has become a summer tradition. This year, you can visit the site virtually and enjoy up to 16 different roller coasters, 11 thrill rides and seven family rides – all from the comfort of your own home. If you have a virtual reality headset, load the video up on your phone or gaming system to enjoy an even more immersive ride experience! In addition, you can watch virtual fireworks displays with over 6,000 explosions of colour above the park skyline. When you need a break from the rides, spend some time on a scavenger hunt or doing some colouring pages. Finish off your Digital Doors Open experience with a homemade funnel cake. Canada’s Wonderland is now sharing their recipe for this sweet summertime treat.

McMichael Canadian Art Collection Doors Open Vaughan

McMichael Canadian Art Collection

The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, located on 40 hectares (100 acres) of forested land along the Humber River, is a major public gallery devoted to collecting the art of Canada. Located on the original lands of the Ojibwe Anishinaabe people, the McMichael is uniquely situated along the historical Carrying Place Trail. The McMichael’s permanent collection consists of over 6,500 artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Métis, Inuit and contemporary artists who have contributed to the development of Canadian art. While the McMichael has reopened, there are restrictions in place for visitors. Check their website for details. Digital visits, however, are also encouraged. Explore their eMuseum – a searchable online collection. Wander the grounds – lush forests, a sculpture garden and scenic hiking trails – with the aid of their downloadable map and audio guided tour. For budding young artists, the McMichael offers the ArtVenture Online program, which includes free art activities, videos, tutorials and more. Watch and learn through a series of curatorial talks and virtual studio visits. Take an online art class. Or discover their many educational resources – from virtual classrooms and tours to workshops and teacher retreats. With Digital Doors Open, there is much to see and do.
