Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We parked at 280 Main Street. That’s the beginning of the park and where you’ll find the pond. And the washrooms. The washrooms don’t have any signs on the door. There is a lookout over the pond. We saw a man fishing. You can park at 218 Main Street but that’s a busier parking lot and it’s the end of the park. But closer to downtown Unionville. Parking is free. Lots of Canadian geese at the entrance. It’s a pretty clean and well groomed park. There’s benches and a few picnic tables. The park actually goes in a roundabout. We saw a double crested cormorant and four turtles in the pond. There were some mosquitoes out. But it’s a nice park with 2 lookouts.We did not see any play grounds. And dogs have to be leashed. I would definitely return.

    It was a wonderful experience. I have not picked strawberries in decades, but this was enjoyable, even though it was 38°C when we went. The people at Reesor’s Farm we’re helpful and showed us how to properly pick strawberries and which rows to pick from. They were also nice enough to make available water to guests to make sure they stayed hydrated while picking. They also have a lovely market with well priced fresh produce, fruits, pies, jam, and many other wonderful things.

    We went to see Joseph and the amazing technicolor dream coat here. The theatre is quite large with comfortable chairs that have plenty of leg and body room. The sound was amazing as well as the lighting. I like that the row of chairs is not flat but on a slant. This theatre has a huge parking lot. I would definitely come back and see another play. You get more bang for your $35 ticket.

    This is a great children's museum. They have a rotating exhibit at the top floor which is interesting as well. Great place to kids to explore if it is too cold to play outside.

    我們是探索 Rouge Valley Trail 以及 Forest Therapy Trail ,想找理想的騎腳踏車路線,而走到了這個小水壩及公園,這裡的步道相當美麗,據說這是 Markham 地區頗受歡迎的景點,步道也可連至於人村的 Toogood Pond 方向,有待下一次再探了。

    On most of my visits to Pacific Mall, I buy a unique made in China product that I never knew existed before. On this visit I bought mini electric shaver, and an electric tooth brush.

    There are many climbing gyms in the metropolitan Toronto area. I’ve been to Boulderz Etobicoke, TCA, Rock Oasis, True North, and Basecamp. Compared to these, I’d rank Hub Markham second only to Boulderz Etobicoke. Here are my thoughts on Hub with a final thought comparing Hub Markham with Boulderz Etobicoke.

    Things I liked:

    - Hub is a large gym with a very large Bouldering section compared to its high walls. They have a good selection of auto belays as well. Probably about 2/3 of the climbing are on bouldering walls and 1/3 are high walls. They also have this awesome two storey high bouldering problem with a foam pit below. What a great way to experience the feeling of height while bouldering in a safe environment.

    - a nice vibe, you can tell a lot of climbers come here to hang out. Kids, clubs and climbers of all levels. Good to see it’s not an exclusive place.

    - prices are the most reasonable as are the rental costs compared to all the other halls I’ve been to so far.

    - a great training section on the second level

    - boulder problems are great and varied. You’ll have lots to choose from with competition and graded problems.

    Things that I thought were “meh”

    - first thing is the smell. Pretty strong, sour feet smell. I guess you get used to it after a few minutes. Coming in from outside and then getting that initial whiff was quite impressive. This is not a unique problem to Hub by the way. Other climbing gyms can have a similar problem but I found that Hub had the strongest of the bunch.

    - the foam mats are quite dirty with stains and chalk. A lot of people just hang out sitting on the mats, which may contribute to the wearing down and ageing of the mats.

    - the gap-covers between mats are tripping hazards. There are so many of them! Not that you’ll smash yourself (you’re on a mat!) but still it contributes to that messy, aged, dated look and when dropping down from a boulder problem there are some places where your foot can pass through in between the mats.

    - the lighting seems less bright compared to other gyms and the concrete, unfinished walls and concrete floor give the impression that you are in a bunker or warehouse. Not that cosy or bright or energetic. But that is more a personal thing.

    - no real “eating/lounging” area where people can get a snack.

    If none of these thing bother you then this gym will offer some of the best climbing in the area. There really isn’t anything else that comes close in this area of Toronto! But if you live on the west side or want to climb at the nicest gym in the Toronto area, I’d give Boulderz Etobicoke a try.

    There is also a Hub located in Mississauga, which I have not been to (yet) and it looks like it could give Boulderz a real run for its money as being the best climbing gym in the region. If I get a chance to make my way there, I’ll be sure to post a review.

    Enjoy climbing! You won’t regret coming to Hub Markham!

    My mum and dad skating here while they were 'courting' in the 1930 and later took their children (my sister and me) there to skate too. We even celebrated our joint 'winter birthdays' (my sister, January 4, our mum, January 28 and mine, February 8) there with school friends, grandparents, food and birthday cake. Our grandpa even slipped on the downhill path and managed to arrive in the wood stove-warmed clubhouse with the cake in perfect condition!
    Wonderful memories. Thank you to Austin Reesor and the whole Reesor family. By the way, 'we travelled' there a long time before November 2018…1950s and 1960s! I wish CEDARENA was still there.

    Well worth an hour of your time. When we visited it had an exhibit about the history of Chinese people in the area, especially related to the impact of the Chinese exclusion act. We learnt a huge amount about the community and gained a greater understanding of the region and the country in the process.

    Three was also an exhibit of work by the feminist environmentalist artist Winnie Truong. Stunning!!!!!

    Immense park criss-crossed with hiking trails, soccer fields, tennis courts, the Don River and my favourite, – the Forest Therapy Trail, an apt name for the calming experience of communing with nature, here. Trail starts at Church Lane, loops around Henderson while traversing the Don a couple of times. Wildlife has been spotted. In the early morning a cacophony of birds great you and squirrels abound. Fall is when you see the colourful flowers and leaves to add to the experience. A must do, see, listen and experience...
