David Dunlap Observatory

123 Hillside Dr, Richmond Hill
8:15-9pm start time, $8, advance tickets required

Family nights at the Dunlap are a great introduction to the night sky for younger guests. Look through (really big) telescopes, make some space crafts, visit the Skylab and find out what’s really up there. The observatory is VERY, VERY popular, and family nights sell out fast but don’t despair, they release blocks of tickets throughout the season so keep checking in. Depending where you live in the city, it’s a hike. It’s a two hour TTC trip that includes a 1.5 km walk from where we’re typing. But worth it – so worth it! Or you could just drive :-)

Meteor showers, a really big telescope & family programming...
