Kawartha Lakes: Home and Playground

By: Leaftech

Looking for real estate in Ontario that will put you in easy access of 50 lakes, rivers and waterways? The City of Kawartha Lakes welcomes you!
To many, the City of Kawartha Lakes is considered a playground for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Whether you are interested in the water, woodlands, snow sports, cycling or ATVs, the Kawartha area offers an abundance of opportunities. If living close to the water is what you are after, look no further!

Fenelon Falls is one of Ontario's most noted breathtaking beauties of nature. Many individuals refer to the falls as the 'jewel' of the Kawarthas. Imagine going to a local restaurant and dining as you watch one of the most amazing water displays that nature has created. The sound and beauty of the rushing water over the falls, a cold or hot beverage, the company of family or friends and best of all it's Friday night and the weekend awaits. Lucky you, your chosen hometown is in the wonderful lake lands of the Kawarthas.

Bobcaygeon is home to Lock 34 of the Trent-Severn Waterway. What an opportunity for anyone who has never experienced the swing bridge of the lock system. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the canal and the diversity of boats that use the lock system to travel from one body of water to another. If your idea of community living includes images of smaller town charm, friendly people and the spectacular beauty of nature, then investigating Bobcaygeon is a must on your list of residential options. Bobcaygeon was given the name of 'shallow rapids' by the Algonquin Indian tribe. Indian history is abundant in the Kawarthas and some of the history remains at the Whetung Ojibawa Centre's annual Pow Wow, the notable Canadian Canoe Museum and through guided walks with Aboriginal Adventures.

If your ideal residential location includes being close to the greater Toronto area or a smaller city, the Kawartha Lakes communities offers that option. You will find yourself only an hour and a half from the Metropolitan area of Toronto and closer still to the city of Peterborough. Peterborough has all the amenities of city life: an active nightlife scene, a university, employment opportunities and diversity in shopping locations.
The Kawarthas was once considered mostly for summer and winter recreation use. Ideas of residential and community living are changing and so are the demographics of this region. If raising a family, escaping the pace of a busy urban centre or retiring to the pleasantries that a smaller community has to offer are in your sights, consider spending some time in your real estate search experiencing the City of Kawartha Lakes.
