View Larger Map

Brockville is situated along Highway 401 and is less than a day's drive to major cosmopolitan centres including:
•    Kingston (70 km)
•    Ottawa (110km)
•    Montreal (210 km)
•    Toronto (340 km)
•    Boston & New York City (591 km)

The beautiful 1000 Islands region is a world-renown tourist destination, but those that live here know how much more fun it is to be here all year long. During the hot and lazy days of summer, inhabitants and tourists from around the world come to boat, fish, sail, camp, golf (at five local courses and another 35 within one hour’s drive!), scuba dive (best fresh water diving in the world), cycle and hike. Some like to paint and photograph the wild beauty of the river.

In winter, while much quieter, the region is still teaming with activity: Cross country skiing (downhill within a two-hour drive), snowmobiling, hiking, ice fishing, ice boating, hockey or just skating on the river.
Brockville is host to countless festivals, events and fun activities. Wine and Food, Tall Ships and Ribfest (to name a few) attract over 400,000 visitors to the region each year.

Part of the charm of the area is that you can live in the country but work in the city, and be all of twenty minutes apart!
