On behalf of town council and staff, I want to thank you for

Wasaga Beach is a wonderful place. Whether you are here for
a lifetime or just the weekend, we are happy to have you.
Our town is comprised of residents who are talented, caring,
and compassionate. Above anything else, the people who live here are what makes
Wasaga Beach such a special place.
The town is fortunate to be one of Ontario’s most popular
tourism destination spots.
Most individuals know our town for having one of the best
beaches in Canada. In fact, our beach holds the distinction of being the
longest freshwater beach in the world.
However, there is so much more to our town.
Wasaga Beach is home to beautiful parks and a tremendous
trail system. Exploring our parks and trails are fantastic ways to get outside
and learn about our town. I encourage you to take full advantage.
We are also proud of our RecPlex facility, which contains
modern recreational amenities and meeting space for various activities. Please
take the time to learn more about the building and the activities that go on
inside. I think you will be pleased.
The Wasaga Sports Park is home to baseball diamonds, soccer
fields, playground equipment, horseshoe pitches, bocce ball courts, a dog park,
covered pavilion, and canoe launch.

Our arena is the heart of our hockey community. Thousands of
young boys and girls over the years have learned to play hockey at the Wasaga
Stars Arena. It is also a focal point for the Wasaga Beach Figure Skating Club.
As well, the arena is home to other types of on-ice skills development.

Both our arena and our library require replacing to meet the
needs of our growing community. We are moving forward with a plan to build a
new arena and library at 544 River Road W.
As well, I must recognize the organizations and volunteers
that contribute so much to our community. Your efforts are truly commendable.

Beach Transit operates two routes in town, seven days a week, between 7 a.m.

serve residents and visitors better.
