Stay to explore the REEP House for Sustainable Living. Or come to check out the house’s sustainable features.
We encourage the use of active transportation such as walking or biking. The house is just off the Iron Horse Trail and we have a bike rake.
It is also easily accessible by GRT bus routes that use Queen and have stops near Mill St.
If you drive, please consider carpooling with others you know are attending.
Since the house only has a few parking spots, we have arranged for parking spaces in a small private lot off Mitchell Street. Just walk across the grass to the back of the house or use the sidewalk on Queen to enter the front of the house.
