Aurora Family Leisure Complex


Family First Night was just a buzz word until we as a family took part in this December 31st annual Town event for the second year in a row. Family First Night is not one of the highly attended events in Town but it is an enjoyable event to do something with your family or …

We had a major fog day in Aurora that also went reported everywhere in York Region and GTA. It was more evident on the country side roads and less in the urbanized areas. I must say, no real winter wonderland magic lately, just a few times. Hopefully soon it will get a bit colder again and hopefully …

I accidentally killed a fish. It was a goldfish, and it was a long time ago. My sister gave me one of her’s to take home. It didn’t occur to her that I knew very little about fish in general. At home I placed my new friend in a glass jar filled with cold water from …

The Aurora Family Leisure Complex (AFLC) renovation has become a topic of concern for many Aurora residents.  The AFLC was closed for renovations for more than a year and re-opened February 28, 2015.  Public concerns being voiced include lack of communication, misunderstanding of the needs, poor planning, and project mismanagement.  The main issues seem to be related to the state of the facility …

During the winter I have seen no one yet. However, it would be a total understatement to say ‘no one in the winter‘ because based on the amount …
