Map / Directions
|Our regional map (see below) shows you how to get here from where you are. Owen Sound is located at the intersection of four provincial highways: 6, 10, 21 and 26. These highways provide direct links to Toronto via Highway 10, Guelph/Kitchener/Hamilton via Highway 6, Collingwood/Barrie via Highway 26, and Sarnia/USA via Highway 21. Highway 6 extends north to Tobermory and the ferry crossing to Manitoulin Island.|
The City of Owen Sound is located on the southern shores of Georgian Bay in a valley below the sheer rock cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. Owen Sound is characterized by a magnificent harbour and bay, two winding rivers, tree-lined streets, an extensive parks system, and tree-covered hillsides and ravines, which are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.
Points of interest include four conservation areas (Inglis Falls, Indian Falls, Hibou and Pottawatomi), Kelso Beach and the City’s waterfront trail system, Harrison Park, Grey Roots Museum & Archives, Tom Thomson Memorial Art Gallery, Billy Bishop Home & Museum, Owen Sound Marine & Rail Museum and the Farmers’ Market.
The downtown, recently refurbished and reminiscent of the 1900s, offers an economy that is balanced and diversified. The Heritage Place Shopping Centre on the east side complements the vibrant, scenic downtown core and other arterial shopping areas.
