Who We Are | Vision, Mission & Values | The Retirement Community | City of Barrie
Nestled between the hills and water, Barrie, a community of 125,000, unfolds around the sparkling waters of Kempenfelt Bay.
Barrie offers an unparalleled selection of recreational, retail and cultural activities - from swimming sailing, fishing and golf, to live theatre, art galleries, farmers' market, and one of Canada's largest Arts & Crafts Festivals. You can explore over 1000 acres of parkland, the many beaches, or walk and bike along the waterfront trails.
Barrie shopping opportunities abound - the Bayfield "Golden Mile" is studded with three malls, numerous plazas, including the "Molson/400" mega store district, and restaurants. Finally, Barrie's best kept secret is its historical downtown which is flanked by parks and waterfront. You can enjoy its many quaint shops and restaurants while watching the wind surfers and sailboats glide by.
