Georgian Bay Waterfront


Georgian Bay Waterfront near Parry Sound

Parry Sound is located on the shores of Georgian Bay in the UNESCO designated Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.

Our waterfront is a people-gathering place, offering attractions, shopping, restaurants and parks, beaches, natural vistas, and trails for your enjoyment.

There is something magical about watching a sunset over the glistening clear waters of the Bay, or walking out onto the winter ice, drilling that hole and catching a fresh lake trout.

Parry Sound is a boater's dream, whether it be for pleasure craft, sail boats or kayaks and the number of free boat launches provides access to the Bay for everyone.

Enjoy our waterfront where clean, deep waters await! We would love to share it with you!
