As in every year, here we are at the end of the summer and it feels like it has flown by!

We will be open on Saturday and closed on Monday.

We hope that everyone has a safe and amazing long weekend. It is sometimes nice to stay local on the last long weekend of the summer and enjoy what Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton have to offer!

Backyard Yoga

Have some friends over or keep it to the family. Set up some mats, towels or blankets and do some yoga. It can be quiet and peaceful or put a few yoga moves and reflections on cards and pick them randomly! New to yoga? or don’t know where to start? Our yoga therapist offers private and semi-private (bring and friend), yoga sessions. Contact our Oakville physio, massage and foot clinic to book.

There are so many amazing hiking trails within Oakville and the surrounding areas. From Lions Valley park to Bronte Creek in Oakville to the Conservation Halton trails that pepper the nearby escarpment, we’re lucky to have such beautiful outdoor treats!

Check out our blog post about hiking with tips and tricks from a physio perspective here!

Bike ride

Take advantage of one of the many bike trails around Oakville. We are so close from our North Oakville Physio clinic to the trails of Bronte Creek Park. Please make sure you wear a helmet on your bike rides. You can find our blog post on the importance of bike helmets here.

Splash pad

There are awesome splash pads around Oakville, Burlington and Milton. There are a few like Nelson that you need to prebook, but it is totally worth it. Pack a lunch and some snacks and make a day of it.

The closest splash pad to our North Oakville Massage clinic is Valley Ridge Park. It’s a great combo of splash pad and playground. There are nice benches and shaded areas. There are also some nice walking paths nearby!

There is actually a proposed splash pad at Palermo Park in the phase 2 development stage. Fingers crossed that it comes to be!

Local park

Enjoy a local park that you don’t normally go to, enjoy the play structure! Meet friends for pickup soccer, volley-ball or badminton.

Downtown Oakville or Kerr Village

Take a walk downtown Oakville and have a cool treat at one of the ice cream / gelato places. Enjoy an iced coffee or sit and people watch!

Lakeshore / Spencer Smith Park

It may be busy n the weekend because rib fest is back in Burlington. It’s an awesome time close to the lake with live music.

Enjoy local this long weekend and enjoy time spent with your friends and loved ones. It may be nice to slow down your pace before the rush of back to school and return to fall sports and activities.

If you are limited in your enjoyment of the above activities because of pain, injury or decreasing function, physiotherapy may be of benefit to you. Please contact us at our North Oakville clinic to see how we can help!
