Parry Sound, Ontario
Parry Sound is located in the central part of Ontario, on the eastern shore of Georgian Bay, 100 miles from Sudbury and 145 miles from Toronto. It became an official Canadian town in 1857.
Parry Sound is a very popular town for cottagers - who bring the town's population to over 75,000 each summer.
There's much to do in Parry Sound. There are several beautiful provincial parks to visit, for example - Oastler Lake, Massasauga, and Killbear. There's also the town's own African Lion Safari, ATV tours of Parry Sound's wilderness, and the 30,000 Island tour - a particularly fascinating tour, as it takes you through what may be the biggest freshwater archipelago on Earth, and home to 100+ endangered species.
From July to August, Parry Sound hosts the Festival of the Sound, which celebrates classical music. Yo-Yo Ma has performed at this festival!
