Wasaga Beach has the distinction of being the world’s longest freshwater beach and is always a popular summer destination. In recent years the residential core has expanded significantly, and with it new retail and services that cater to a growing year-round population. Wasaga Beach’s popularity with home buyers is due to its attractive prices and close proximity to employment opportunities in Barrie, Midland, Borden and Collingwood. It also offers great golfing, hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling. The “Rec-Plex” is centrally located with an auditorium, amphitheater and YMCA.
Wasaga Beach Provincial Park — which includes the entire waterfront, — has 8 Beach Areas spread over 14 kilometres of sandy beach, with picnic areas, playgrounds, the boardwalk, stores and restaurants. Throughout the summer the Beach hosts many events, and the Park is Canada’s first to be awarded the Blue Flag designation.
