Windmill Garden Centre
Before visiting the butterflies and goats at the adjoining John’s Butterfly House, grab a scoop of Foothills Creamery and explore the beautiful and refreshing garden centre. Once you’re full of sweet treats, put 25 cents in a food dispenser to feed the goats, too!
Where you can indulge in hand-crafted ice cream made with only quality ingredients, Cream Cult can be found at 7 Rivers Trading Co., RJ’s Convenience, and The Market Centre.
The Bourbon Brothers
A place with regular and alcohol-infused ice cream. With flavours announced monthly, 9-5’s are great to eat any time in the day, while after hours is where you’ll find that extra sweet treat in the evening.
