Owen Sound


Be sure to plan ahead before visiting this fall, as many operators are running at reduced capacity or are closed for the season due to COVID-19.  When in BruceGreySimcoe, follow social distancing protocols, wear a mask and wash your hands frequently.

Situated at the base of the Bruce Peninsula with the Niagara Escarpment as a defining feature, the “Scenic City” is aptly named with beautiful parks, waterfront trails, waterfalls, museums and art galleries.  Fall is a “fishy” time of year here with the Owen Sound Salmon Tour, coinciding with the fall migration run, starting in mid-September.  Hike, paddle, cycle or drive to follow the salmon on their journey and take in some beautiful scenery along the way.  Pause for a picnic or at pick up take-out at one of the many restaurants as you pass through the downtown core. 
 
Spend some time in Harrison Park walking the trails and doing some paddling surrounded by stunning fall foliage. Take out a bite to eat at the Harrison Park Inn (or enjoy a meal on the patio, weather permitting) before heading off to explore four waterfalls close by or perusing the artwork of iconic Canadian artist Tom Thomson at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery.  The music scene is HOT in Owen Sound with Heartwood Hall a definite hotspot featuring live entertainment of all kinds.  Families will love checking out Grey Roots Museum & Archives and exploring the history of the county. Feeling hungry and thirsty?  Head over to Mudtown Station, a restaurant and brewery housed in the former CP Railway Station.
