Its hot out.   And while some of our offices have cottages by the lake and shady forests to keep them cool (ahem, Prince Edward County, Muskoka, Haliburton and Collingwood…), Toronto has ice cream. If youre out looking at properties with our agents today, we recommend stopping at some of these ice cream shops for a cool-down break. Below is Chestnut Parks top five places to grab ice cream and beat this heat wave!
