The other is the outdoor Valleyview Aquatic Centre, which you’ll find just a 15-minute walk from our cozy hotel. It’ll open when the weather warms up!

Free Drop in Sports
Starting November 3rd, free, drop-in sports nights return to Valleyview.

November Movie Screenings
If you’re not a sports fan, or you’d prefer a quiet activity, you’ve got plenty of options too. On November 5th, for example, you can head over to New Fish Creek Hall for a free screening of recently-released Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic World, which stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Valleyview may be a small town, but don’t let that fool you. Ours is a region that is always abuzz with fun, from exciting outdoor activities, to charming festivals, and everything in between.
For proof of this fact, look no further than Valleyview’s annual Fall Festival, which is scheduled for September 11th, just a few short weeks away. The fun goes down at Valleyview’s Polar Palace Hockey Arena, just a short walk, or 5 minute drive from our cozy hotel. So, just what does this festival entail? Allow us to give you a preview!
One of the main attractions of the Fall Festival is its outdoor movie event. The movie was chosen by visitors to the festival’s Facebook page from a pool that included The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland, and Inside Out. This year, after many votes were cast, the movie that’s going to be shown is the latter. The film tells the tale of young Riley’s move from the Midwest to San Francisco, and as an animated Disney/ Pixar film, it’s the perfect choice for guests traveling with your children. Catch it on the big screen at the festival!
But that’s not all the fall festival is set to feature. The event will also include a corn boil and hot dog barbecue, and here’s where the news gets even better: all of these goodies are free! And finally, this autumn event will feature all the staples you’d expect of a small town festival: live entertainment, plenty of food and drink, fun and games, and more. The excitement kicks off at 6:00pm and runs through till 10:00pm.
When you’ve had your fun at this lovely staple of Valleyview’s autumn, head back to our conveniently located hotel for a great night’s sleep, alongside awesome amenities and competitive rates!
Book your stay today. We look forward to welcoming you to town!
Valleyview is right in the middle of some incredible wilderness and beautiful nature. Not least of all this flora and fauna is Young’s Point Provincial Park, a remarkable destination for nature-lovers of all kind, any time of year. Next time you’re in Valleyview, make some time to visit this park, not just for the scenery and fresh air, but for the great activities available as well.
Young’s Point is home to all the traditional park activities, but taken to another level. The park is full of great hikes along the beautiful beaches and through the picture-perfect forests. There’s also both mountain biking and cycling, for those who love off road and those who prefer to stay on them. Horseshoes are also available, as is swimming.
On the water
Speaking of swimming, there’s plenty more to do with the water. There are docks for fishing, and plenty of room for kayaking and canoeing, but if you’re looking for something a step up, try sailing, power boating, water-skiing, or even wind-surfing. The park’s vast blue lake is perfect for all of the above, so prepare to get your feet wet!
The park is much more than an activity center, though. Visitors can look to the skies (or up in the trees) with their binoculars for some excellent birding. Keep your binoculars close to the ground, too, as there’s plenty of wildlife viewing available (can you spot a moose?). If you find nature to be a poor teacher for the day, pay attention to the interpretive program as it guides you through the park and all it has to offer the keen observer and open mind.
There’s a reason Young’s Point makes such an excellent place to spend time, and it isn’t just because it’s beautiful, so next time you’re in town, grab your outdoor equipment and make for the park! When you get back, be sure to also make a point of staying in our modern hotel. Book your room today. We look forward to your visit!
