Life in Huntsville
Welcome to “my home town”, with almost everything 5 minutes to water, it is no surprise that we have Algonquin park only 30 minutes to the West gate, making hiking, kayaking, camping an everyday adventure. Huntsville welcomes you to our Algonquin theatre and many fabulous live productions from music to theatre. The Canada Summit centre is a product of the G8 and houses 2 ice surfaces, a walking track, and gym with a local coffee shop to sit awhile and chat about what to do next. The Active living centre for Seniors is located in the Summit centre making access to the pools, and parks and Pioneer Village very handy for a days outing. Boat through the locks from Fairy lake down the Muskoka river into Port Sydney and see the stunning waters of Mary Lake and take a swim at the beach. I call this “HOME”, and what a place it is!
