Family Day Turns Ten! Activities Close to OPUS Homes Communities in the GTA

Family Day just became a ‘tween’!  In Ontario, did you know that it has been 10 years since this awesome holiday was established?  As parents, we love Family Day, because there are so many great things to do with the kids, many of them free.

OPUS Homes is proud to have new home communities throughout the GTA, in Brampton, Toronto, Richmond Hill, Aurora and Whitby.  Here are a few of our favourites.


Our Origins community is situated at Mayfield Rd. and Chinguacousy Rd., in Brampton. Brampton is a wonderful family community with world-class recreation facilities such as Cassie Campbell Rec Centre, Heart Lake, Loafers Lake, Eldorado Park and more.  This Family Day, head to Downtown Brampton, to Gage Park and participate in the free activities there, including roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, skating, crafts, treats and music.
