Disconnect to Reconnect

Posted Date
We all want to look back on our summers and reminisce on the memories made, laughs we shared, and celebrated moments that will never be forgotten. When in Middlesex County, adventure and escape await within our charming communities offering everything from fairs and festivals, to natural sites and must-see scenic views. Simple escapes like these are important to cherish, but can be so easily missed, especially with the distraction of electronics that often keep us from being present. This summer we challenge you to a day away from your screens…a day of disconnect in order to reconnect with yourself and those you care about in Middlesex County. Whether you’re personally trying to cut back on screen-time, looking to get the kids outdoors, or looking to challenge yourself, were setting you up for success with our full day itinerary, which lists a few of our favourite activities, each ranging in category, and no electronic devices required!

Connecting Middlesex County: The Role of Recreation

Posted Date
While Middlesex County is home to municipalities that range in size and attractions, each boasts a thriving sports community and shares a commitment to cherishing current and future recreational opportunities. Throughout the past two years, Middlesex County and the majority of the world have been forced to pause several recreational opportunities; leaving children, adults, and supporting members with a missing piece in their weekly routine. Recreation, beyond its contributions to developing strong social bonds, civic engagement and community health, also directly affects the tourism industry and overall economy. Within its role, local parks and recreational facilities attract tourists and residents to the area, generating an increase in population and property value while attracting new business developments to the area, and therefore an increase in economic activity and opportunity. Amongst the growing benefits recreation provides, and as our local municipalities have resumed recreational activities this year, we decided to take a closer look at its direct effect on one of our local municipalities and what residents can look forward to!
