On summer nights, you’ll hear the roar from Delaware Speedway, one of the oldest stock car race tracks in Canada. Come out and watch or enter your own car in a King of the Hill race.

There are lots of ways to enjoy the outdoors here. You’ll find several public golf courses nearby, including Firerock Golf Club and Oxbow Glen Golf Club in Komoka, and Twin Streams Golf & Country Club and Echo Valley Golf Club near Delaware. Take in the beautiful Carolinian forests and environmentally significant habitats in Komoka Provincial Park and the Coldstream Conservation Area. You might even see some endangered species of birds or wildlife.

For a day trip, follow the historic Southwest Ontario Barn Quilt Trails. You’ll see some beautiful heritage pieces on barns near Delaware.

If you’re interested in history or trains, Komoka has lots of both. At the Komoka Rail Museum housed in the former Canadian National Railway station, you’ll find a 1913 Shay steam locomotive, displays of telegraph keys, spike hammers, spike pullers, switch lanterns, steam gauges and a three-wheel velocipede.

Afterwards, stop in to McLachlan Brothers – Maple Syrup & Pancake House in Komoka. The McLachlan family has run the business since 1842. This historic family restaurant is open seasonally from the last weekend in February to the beginning of April. As you enjoy the maple syrup, you can learn the evolution of maple syrup production.
