Summer in the River District brings a long list of activities for anyone looking for a way to spend a summer day. The River District is bustling with people of all ages going in and out of the shops, sharing public space along the Sydenham river, and taking in the abundance of arts, culture, and natural beauty. The streets are lined with beautiful floral arrangements cascading from the lamp posts down to the sidewalks. When not exploring the unique shops and galleries, visitors to the River District find themselves taking in the patios that line the streets seasonally or one of the more permanent patios that offer a tranquil retreat or incredible rooftop views of the City.
