Things to Do In Chatsworth
While Chatsworth may be really tiny in size compared to other towns in the area, it has a lot to offer. For instance, here is a look at the various things you can do while in Chatsworth:
The Keady Livestock and Farmers Market - Walk through the market where dozens of vendors sell varieties of items from crafts, produce ranging from local apples, to Niagara peaches to deli Meats, home baking and many other goodies! The Market runs every Tuesday from 7 AM to 2 PM. Livestock auctions begin at 9 AM.
Walters Falls - Founded in 1852, Walters Falls may just be another water fall in the area, but the area is purely picturesque. It is a local tourist attraction and is a good way to spend the day when you are in Chatsworth for a short amount of time. The area is also surrounded by all sorts of bush and farmlands and is located quite close to the Bruce Trail.
Williamsford - This tiny village on Highway 6 offers some unique attractions right on the main highway. Visit the Williamsford Mill, which is now the home of Great Books & Cafe, where you can curl up with a book or have a meal and enjoy the scenery. Pick up a pie at the renowned Williamsford Pie Company! Just off Highway 6 on MotoPark Road, you'll find an historic yet future friendly off-road facility. MotoPark once hosted a World Grand Prix motocross event and currently hosts many motocross, off-road and enduro races. The park is also packed in the summer with ongoing camp programs.
