Collingwood is a bustling town filled with energy and creativity. It acts as a gateway to the South Georgian Bay region, with stunning landscapes that encourage an active lifestyle, and inspire the local arts & culture community. Collingwood is a historic harbourfront community that was recently ranked by expedia.com as one of the top 10 most beautiful destinations in Canada.
Exploring is easy with nearly 70 km of recreational trails that weave through town for bikers, hikers and snowshoers to enjoy. Enjoy breathtaking views from Sunset Point Park and the Hen & Chickens Boardwalk, or unwind at the peaceful Arboretum. Collingwood is also home to an incredible array of culinary talent and local, farm fresh and artisanal foods and beverages as well as a wide range of shopping choices.
Georgian Bay is an important part of Collingwood’s heritage. New vessels were side launched into the harbour throughout the 103 years of shipbuilding that took place. Discover this rich heritage in the murals of downtown Collingwood, at The Station Museum, and the Collingwood Harbour where the Collingwood Terminals majestically still stand. Collingwood's downtown has been designated an official Heritage District — the first in all of Canada.
Known for its high-energy events and abundant activities, Collingwood throws a street party like no other, and continues to impress with infamous annual events like the Collingwood Elvis Festival, Side Launch Days Harbour Festival and Whiskylicious.
