The City of Markham is one of the greatest places to live, work and raise a family in Canada. Centrally located in the Greater Toronto Area, the community of more than 310,000 is one of Canada’s most diverse communities and is renowned for its rich heritage and vibrant neighbhourhoods.
Because culture is such a vital part of a vibrant and livable community, the city has provided quality programming at its three cultural facilities that are second to none: The Varley Art Gallery of Markham, the Flato Markham Theatre and the Markham Museum, all of which provide educational programs and feature performances geared towards adults and children.
For those who work and play outside of the city, Markham’s easy access to major arteries, including highways 407 and 404, as well as GO Transit, YRT and VIVA, make it the perfect place for commuters and busy families alike.
Markham has attractions and activities for all interests, backgrounds and ages. There are over 150 kilometres of multi-use trails available for leisurely strolls or an invigorating bike ride. The Milne Dam Conservation Area is always busy during the spring and summer months with hikers and picnickers. In 2011, the city opened a variety of new and exciting recreation facilities, including a regulation sized, artificial turf soccer field with a dome, an indoor tennis court complex next to the Angus Glen Community Centre and the GTA’s largest artificial ice skating rink at the Markham Civic Centre.
For those looking to escape the city lights and get some country air, weekend family outings have never been easier to plan with Forsythe Family Farms in Uxbridge and Whittamore’s Farm close by. Both offer an assortment of annual events and activities for kids and the young at heart.
If you’re new to Markham, welcome! Spring is the perfect time to get outside and discover all that your new community has to offer. And if you’re thinking of making the move to Markham…what are you waiting for?!
