Trying to refine your golf game at the driving range alone is often difficult, especially for those who can't resist the urge to blast through an entire bucket of balls with nothing but their driver. At Kitchener Golf Academy/Ryall Golf's Doon Valley location, golfers encounter a variety of training venues to address all elements of the game.

The facility encompasses an 18-hole, championship-length course and a full-length 9-hole course, where golfers can test their mettle against a variety of holes sculpted through wetlands and along the banks of the Grand River. Doon Valley also features a 9-hole, pitch-and-putt course, where a series of short holes helps players zero in on the most critical aspect of golf—the short game—and ignore the sweet siren song crooned by their driver. However, when it is time to test their power off the tee, Doon Valley offers a full-size driving range—the main feature of a practice facility that also includes a putting green and a practice bunker. The grounds at Kitchener Golf also host the 18-hole Rockway course. Built in 1935, the par-70 course measures 5,520 yards from the farthest tees and challenges golfers with trees that line the fairways like spectators at a golf cart drag racing event.

Kitchener Golf Academy/Ryall Golf's staff of PGA of Canada pros make use of all of Doon Valley's facilities in lessons and clinics offered to golfers of all ages and abilities.

From Elora to Cambridge, the Grand River rolls smoothly over a shallow bottom, averaging a mere three feet deep. That leaves just enough room for the hull of a canoe or kayak to glide smoothly down the waterway, especially when moving with the current. The guides of Canoeing the Grand?and its sister business, Tubing the Grand?are there to help visitors get their fill of all the fun this natural lazy river has to offer every day from April to November.

Before sending participants on their way, staff instructors provide guidance on how to operate the rental canoes and kayaks before bringing everyone to various put-in points. Once in the water, trips can last as little as 1.5 hours or as many as 11, allowing participants to power through a full journey or stop for a leisurely picnic. The moving flatwater also makes an ideal surface for a relaxing tubing trip. Families can plop into inflatable rings at the put-in points and simply go with the flow, never having to worry about paddling or even sitting up straight, since slouching is the first rule of relaxation.

The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.

The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony was founded out of necessity; in 1945, the Grand Philharmonic Choir was preparing a recital and needed tuneful accompaniment for the harmonic voices. Once its backup duty was over, however, the newly convened orchestra quickly established itself as an independent source for both classical and pops concerts performing more than 100 concerts annually in the Waterloo region. Now home to 52 on-staff musicians, the orchestra continues its decades-long tradition at venues around Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, and Cambridge. From his position as music director, Edwin Outwater oversees the joyful noise, which ranges from baroque to Beethoven to the Beatles and Broadway. Since assuming the role in 2007, Outwater has been one of the orchestra's most vigorous boosters, arranging the group's first commercial recording in a decade, engineering an exploration of prog rock in collaboration with the Institute for Quantum Computing, and knitting sweaters for each musician's instrument.

Though the winter snow has melted, inner tubes continue to zoom down the routes at Chicopee Tube Park—now cruising atop Italian mats, designed for waterless tubing. A host of other outdoor attractions complement the park’s eponymous activity. Two ziplines—an 80-metre line for first timers and a 300-metre line for veteran fliers—let passengers glide above the treetops without having to hitch a ride on a passing pterodactyl. The Eurobungy trampoline also gives guests the gift of flight, granting harness-sporting park-goers the ability to leap up to 25 feet in the air, and the spider-web climbing tower offers stationary bird’s-eye views once climbers have hoisted themselves to its pinnacle. For low-to-the-ground fun, harnessed participants at the horizontal ropes can balance six feet off the ground, getting a taste of tightrope walking without that chalky, acrophobic aftertaste.

THEMUSEUM’s vision—“To awe, inspire and enlighten”—is evident to its visitors as soon as they traverse the adult- and child-sized doorways. Once inside, they begin their journey through the exhibition halls in front of the vibrant plants protruding from the Living Wall, whose purpose is to clean the air and cool the interior of the multilevel facility. Along with permanent exhibitions, THEMUSEUM also hosts temporary exhibits; past installations have explored the pop art innovations of Andy Warhol's Factory, the interplay between art and electronics, and the experimental brushstrokes of painter Tom Thomson. In addition, THEMUSEUM is also a destination for global travelling exhibits, having played host to travelling international blockbusters like Our Body: The Universe Within and Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.
