Community Highlight

King’s Bay makes the most of its pristine location on the shorelines of Lake Scugog and the Nonquon River by incorporating natural water landscapes into its picturesque setting.

Located just three kilometres north of Port Perry is the Nonquon Provincial Wildlife Area. This 2,800 acres of publicly-owned property is managed by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. There are a myriad of trails, but they are neither marked nor maintained. This area makes for a great family outing to bird watch or snowshoe and enjoy what nature has to offer.

One of the largest draws to the area is the Nonquon River and the easy access to Lake Scugog. Whether you are fishing (all year long), boating, snowmobiling, or having a great neighbourhood game of pond hockey, it is conducive to family fun.

Things to do in Greenbank/Seagrave

With a friendly atmosphere and a strong sense of community, the Seagrave and Greenbank area is known for its family-friendly setting and neighbourhoods.

Tucked away you’ll find the Greenbank Restaurant serving authentic Japanese and Korean food. Other hidden gems in the area are local lavender farms that create organic artisan lavender products, including Lavender Blu in Seagrave, and Christel Lake Lavender in Greenbank.
