We encourage the use of active transportation such as walking or biking. The house is just off the Iron Horse Trail and we have a bike rack.
It is also easily accessible by GRT bus routes that use Queen and have stops near Mill St. If you drive, please consider carpooling with others you know are attending.
Since the house only has a few parking spots, there is free temporary parking available at the lot on Mitchell Street. From there you can walk across the green to the back of Reep House.

Lakeside Garden Tour | RAIN Smart Neighbourhood Project Celebration
Jul 28 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods Project is nearing the end and we wanted to celebrate and recognize the accomplishments of the Lakeside community. We are hosting a garden tour, in collaboration with a placemaking celebration in Lakeside park, to showcase the various projects that have been put in the ground over the past two seasons.
Join us to celebrate the implementation of the park’s new recycling bins and for a tour showcasing the success of neighbourhood projects, beginning at 11am, looping back around to end off at the park.
Take a tour with one of our RAIN staff and get to know many of the beautiful garden and stormwater projects throughout the neighborhood. Stop and chat with the homeowners and get some inspiration for your own garden projects.
This event is a great opportunity to showcase the amazing work in the community and celebrate the hard work and dedication each resident has put into their property to make the RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods Project a success.
