Owen Sound

This bustling city is in the heart of Grey County. At the base of the Bruce Peninsula, Owen Sound is a great destination for visitors to BruceGreySimcoe. With a beautiful harbour that’s the winter home of the ChiCheemaun and the host of the annual Salmon Spectacular Fishing Derby, there are plenty of waterfront views and secret swimming spots here. Add to that jewels like Harrison Park just a short jaunt from downtown Owen Sound and great cycling and hiking trails throughout the area and recreational opportunities abound here. Owen Sound also has four waterfalls within easy rich of the city limits: Inglis Falls, Jones Falls, Indian Falls and Weavers Creek Falls in Harrison Park. In the fall, the salmon migrate upstream through the city on the Sydenham River. Take the Owen Sound Salmon Tour and head to the Mill Dam to watch them jump.

The city is also home to the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, the Billy Bishop Heritage Museum and nearby Grey Roots Museum and Archives. The downtown centre also has great places to eat like The Milk Maid and Casero Kitchen Table as well as an intimate venue for live music – Heartwood Hall.
