Our High Pointe Meadows community in beautiful Fort Erie has just launched its second phase of sales and lots of families are taking notice! Not only are there a number of top schools in the area, but there are also so many activities and locations that are perfect for you and your children. We've put together a quick neighbourhood overview for families interested in seeing what High Pointe Meadows has to offer.
The Fort Erie Leisureplex is definitely a must-see for those with active little ones! Only a seven minute walk from High Pointe Meadows, this is the next generation of recreation centre. It incorporates the latest technology, public and private partnerships, as well as innovations to ensure the building is everything the community needs and more. The Leisureplex offers activities for all seasons, ranging from an outdoor skatepark to public skating and sporting events in the arena. It's also worth mentioning that if you're looking for an event space to host the next big birthday party, you can rent rooms within the building. Be sure to check out their website to keep track of their events and to book your own.
If you're looking for an afternoon full of sun, smiles, and grass between your toes, look no further than Bertie Centennial Park. Home of the Greater Fort Erie Youth Soccer Club, Bertie Centennial Park is a great option if you're looking for a place to let everyone run wild! This location offers a soccer field, tennis court, jungle gym, splash pad, covered gazebo and lots of open areas which are all extremely well maintained. As another plus, this park has bathrooms on location so no cramped, hot porta potties to deal with. Only a three minute drive from High Pointe Meadows this can easily become your Sunday afternoon picnic spot.
Crescent Beach is one of those true hidden gems of the community. When coming to Fort Erie, most tourists flock to Crystal Beach; leaving this small stretch of sand quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. This serene oasis is perfect for families with small children who are just learning to swim because you don't have to worry about hordes of jostling bodies and the pure sand bottom of the shallow water slopes very gradually out to the deeper end. If you're looking to soak up some sun with the family we highly recommend taking the seven minute drive to this sandy getaway.
Of course, we couldn't talk about the amenities of this neighbourhood without mentioning all the family-friendly food options! Green Acres Family Restaurant is a staple in the community, that has been serving Canadian-style cuisine for over 40 years. This location is a mere five minute walk from High Pointe Meadows, meaning you can easily stop in anytime and try their famous Fish And Chips platter. If you're looking for something a little more exotic for your family meal, Lee's Xpress is only three minutes away and offers great Chinese Meals for a good price. Be sure to bring your appetites though, the portions are big! Zia's Pizzeria is also a wonderful choice for family dinner. Their meals are made fresh and the menu is varied enough that you're sure to find something for everyone. Of course, after your meal, you'll HAVE to swing by You Deserve It for some incredible homemade ice cream even tourists will travel to get their hands on!
