Explore the outdoors in Orangeville

Who’s ready to get outside? For many of us, the arrival of Spring creates a renewed enthusiasm for the outdoors. Fresh air, budding blooms, and green grass are reminders of the myriad of activities and sights that can be enjoyed when that anticipated warmer weather arrives. There are plenty of outdoor locations in Orangeville that deserve a spot on your to-do list this Spring.
Families will want to save some time and energy for the nearby Natural Playground. Logs, trees, and boulders are placed alongside a climbing wall, an obstacle course, and outdoor musical instruments to encourage kids of all ages to run, jump, and play in the naturally inspired space. Wood structures offer an epic venue for hide and seek, an idea that was developed in consultation with the Credit River Metis Council. Around the park, benches adorned with carvings of local flora and fauna contribute a creative whimsy and provide a fun place to take a break from all of the action.

Island Lake Conservation Area’s trail map can help you find the location of the playground and the trails.
Blues and Jazz is back!

The award-winning Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival is bringing live music back to downtown Orangeville. Mark your calendars and join the celebration from June 3 to 5. To get your toes tapping in anticipation, check out these two recently announced acts:
The Legendary Downchild Blues Band will deliver a live performance with their signature jump-blues style and soulful sound. The JUNO Award winners have released 19 albums and won countless awards over their 50-year history. See them on the TD Main Stage on Friday, June 3 at 9:30 p.m.
Blackburn is a band of brothers – literally. Duane (lead vocals), Brooke (guitar), Cory (drums), and Robert (harmony vocals and songwriting on the newest release) all share the Blackburn name; a name that has become truly connected to Toronto music history. Blackburn received the Maple Blues Award for Best New Band in 2010 and a JUNO nomination for Blues Album of the Year in 2016. The band hits the TD Main Stage on Saturday, June 4 at 9:30 p.m.
Follow along as more acts are announced in the coming weeks. The Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival is also actively recruiting volunteers. If you’re interested in supporting the festival in a behind-the-scenes way, get details and apply online.

Throughout Orangeville, there are 25 functional utility boxes that have been transformed into colourful displays of artwork. Each piece features the work of a local artist and this year, the Town is looking to add up to three more locations to the collection through the annual Call for Artists.

Eligible artists must reside in Dufferin County and be over 18 years of age. Submissions are due by Thursday, May 19. Full details can be found online.

To find each utility box art display, use our digital guide or download the free Driftscape mobile app. Simply search "utility" to find each piece.
