Toddler activities?

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on what to do for children ages 1.5-2 years old. I noticed alot of public programs start around 2 y/o or if you are a baby. We have already tried some reading programs at libraries and that seems ok but just want more variety. We are located in the Markham area. Thanks!

'Play dates'. Find other parents with similar aged kids. Try to meet up or host something at your house. Also, get a small table with chairs. Paper, crayons, or paint.

My son turned 2 in June and I'm also in Markham so here's what fun activities we did (everything but science center was done during the weekday, weekend rush might make them crazy):

Richmond Green Park ->nice because little traffic, close to home and plenty of room to run around
Markham Civic Center, kids loved chasing the geese and there's a water park across the street at Millenium Park, plus can show him the high school I went to
Toronto Zoo ->kids love it
Lionel's farm (where U can feed animals! www.lionelsfarm.com), this seems even more fun than the zoo!
Center Island, go during the weekday and only by a unlimited play wristband for your kids, for adults just get the pay per play coupons because most rides for kids are either kids only or the adult can go free if just holding the kid like the merry go around or the pony ride.
Ontario Science Center (my son loved the mini grocery store they have there), this was really surprising because u'd think the Science center is for much older kids but they have a special zone for little kids (https://www.ontariosciencecentre.ca/calendar/44/)
First Markham Place, in the food court they seem to have some activities for little kids
