Living In Durham Region!

Oshawa might bring to mind car manufacturing and now education, but it is also a great city for raising a family. We have lived in Oshawa our entire lives. We’ve raised 2 kids here and now our daughter is raising her girls here as well.   One of our family favourite getaways within the city is Lakeveiw Park,   a 44 acre park right on Lake Ontario.
In the summer, you can find our family playing in the water at one of the sandy beaches, or taking our granddaughters to the park to burn off some energy on the giant playground.

This summer we caught a Live Play in the Park that was very entertaining. Canada Day celebrations are a big hit for the residents of this area. There is quite a firework display to end the day.

You never know who you might meet walking along the waterfront trail.  Chances are, you will either see an old friend or make an new one, either way, its a great place to meet.
