Great Mall with everything you could ever want in a shopping experience. Food court second only to Yorkdale for quality and selection. Arrived at 8.45 only to see most of the spots close to the entrance occupied. Are the employees taking these spots?

The Varley presents Exhibitions of historical and contemporary Canadian art, and offers educational programs year-round. Through research, Exhibitions, community programming and publications, the Gallery explores the art of F.H. Varley – a founding member of the Group of Seven – his peers, and other artists who have shaped artistic practice in Canada.
A nice modern building at the end of Unionville's historic Main Street. The permanent Varley collection is quite interesting. The special exhibits can vary.... this time it was about communication, which did very little for me. However it is always worthwhile taking the time to look in when in the area.

It is so nice to have a professional theatre venue north of the city WITH PARKING! It's so much easier to navigate this area than downtown Toronto. And it's nice to have big acts come here, yet the atmosphere is cosy and intimate. Beautifully luxurious inside.

Whether you're water skiing, jet skiing, mountain or road biking, skiing or snowboarding, we will make your next adventure unforgettable!
I've rented twice from Exclusive sports now from groups of 8+ to a group with just 3 sets - Exclusive Sport Rentals has always come through and was quick, knowledgeable and extremely friendly throughout the whole experience. All the gear was in great shape and they were able to answer many questions I had about the sport itself. Will definitely be renting from here again :)

For years my family and I enjoyed our summer and fall visits to Whittamore farm. Sadly this is the last year since the farm is closed forever. Over the years, we enjoyed the fresh strawberries, fruits and vegetables grown locally, along with delicious baked goods. Goodbye Whittamore and thank you for the nice memories over the years.

I went to see the water polo Pan Am events here. Canada won! The pool is impressive as the 2 outer walls can be moved and the floor can be dropped. I can't wait to see what they do with it when the tournament is over. Of course it's very clean and quite impressive. The score boards can be seen from anywhere in the ample Seating area. There are also gorgeous badminton courts with stadium Seating behind. This is a first class building. Markham will be lucky to inherit it after the games.

The Kindred Spirits Orchestra has performed since 2009, to a great acclaim, sold-out audiences, and standing ovations at the legendary CBC Glenn Gould Studio in downtown Toronto. As of the 2011, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra has also established a 6-concert subscription series at the Flato Markham Theatre, in addition to 3 community-outreach and 2 educational Concerts. Led by the charismatic Maestro Kristian Alexander, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra is enjoying an enormous popularity among York Region's residents and continues to attract avid audiences across the Greater Toronto Area. The Kindred Spirits Orchestra performs a wide range of compositions by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Handel, Tchaikovsky, Haydn, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Chopin, and many others. Ardent supporter of contemporary music, the Kindred Spirits Orchestra created, also in 2011, Markham Contemporary Music Festival, an annual event that has brought to life great pieces of the 20th century by Lutoslavsky, Stravisnky, Philip Glass, Honegger as well as by illustrious Canadian composers such as Garry Kulesha, Brian Current, Larysa Kuzmenko, Daniel Friedman, Kevin Lau, Constantine Caravassilis and James Campbell. During the past few years alone, the orchestra has regularly worked with internationally renowned soloists such as pianists Andre Laplante, Christina Quilico and James Parker, harpist Ann Hobson Pilot, violinists Jacques Israelievitch, Joelle Kee and Marc Djokic, cellist Rachel Mercer, soprano Rebecca Whelan, and tenor Keith Klassen, among many others. In 2014, the KSO has also given the Canadian premiere of John Williams' fame piece "On Willows and Birches" as well as the world premiere of James Campbell's Concerto for Harp and Orchestra.
I would take my whole family to listen to The Kindred Spirits Orchestra when they are performing at Unionville Main Street and they never disappoint us! Captivating, thrilling, Passionate are just a few words that come to mind when I am listening to them perform.

We were invited to the museum for a children's birthday party. It was an amazing first visit for our family! The kids had an opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt outside, which was run by one of the staff. They had a great time and the parents followed with their cameras. Then they had a quick snack of smores followed by a craft, led by staff, back at the museum. The party ended with pizza and cake. It was a great time for everyone!

I have been to many Performances, all winners in my book. The theater is mid sized but very personal, allowing the visitor to experience the performance and performers close up and personal. Such a wonderful Entertainment Venue. Full of local artworks too. A+.
