From Graham Blair, Reeve

Township of Wollaston

For many years, for many people,

Wollaston Township has been a

hidden gem. It’s a place to get

away from the distractions of life

in the city and to have some fun

and adventure.

In Wollaston Township we’re

practical people. We’ve got

lakes so we use them for boating,

fishing and swimming. We love

to share our public beach so it’s

well equipped for visitors with

washrooms, picnic areas and a

great sandy beach for the kids.

Our commercial centre, the

Hamlet of Coe Hill, offers great

places to eat, shop, visit and to

experience the abundance of art

that this region inspires. Even our

yard sales have a special charm.

And when you’re in Coe Hill, if a

car horn honks, chances are it’s

just someone saying hello.

We’re a community that

loves to visit. From the Coe Hill

Fair to events at our Legion to our

renowned Warrior’s Day event,

we’re a community that likes to

entertain the whole family. We’re

always looking for an opportunity

to visit. We’ll start a conversation

at the liquor store, at the Post

Office, on the street; it’s just our

way of catching-up and sharing

a kind word.

When you’re done visiting

and feel ready for a more rugged

experience, just take a few steps

off our main street and you

have trails, conservation areas

and backroads to explore. With

our beautiful landscapes it’s

like stepping into a Group of 7

painting in all its glory.

So take your time, feel

welcome and enjoy everything

Wollaston Township has to offer.

You’ll meet some of the nicest

people and have some of the

best adventures you can ever

imagine. Welcome home to

Wollaston Township.

Sincerely,

Graham Blair, Reeve

dine in a fully restored one

of a crackling woodstove over

high tea. While you are there,

make sure to visit the fully

functional mercantile where

goodies, treats, delicacies and

Township of Limerick

We have several small

hamlets, and many lakes and

rivers. The area has fishing,

boating and swimming to name

a few of the activities to partake

during the summer months.

During the winter months,

snowmobiling, snow shoeing

and ice fishing are prevalent.

Four wheeling is a year round

activity as well.

There are other beautiful

sights in the township. The

wildlife is breathtaking during the

winter months, most especially

in the deer yard located in the

hamlet of Millbridge. It is not

unheard of to see upwards of

one hundred white tails coming

from all directions to feed on hay

and grain provided by the local

residents.

If you stop your vehicle, four

wheeler or snowmobile on any

of our roadways or trails you are

apt to see some form of wild life

be it a squirrel, a turkey, a deer

or possibly even a black bear or

two.

If you are in the mood for a

drive through some beautiful

country roads or just have a

cool swim at the public beach

on Gunter Lake we will welcome

you to our township with great

pride!
