Get to Know The Area

With a strong sense of rural character and friendly, small-town charm, the area of Greenbank and Seagrave is a top choice for many looking for a home in the Scugog North area.

West of Port Perry and Lake Scugog lies a small collection of communities that make up Rural Scugog North. Greenbank and Seagrave, in particular, are idyllic hamlets with tree-lined streets, large country-size lots and converted farmhouses amongst others just north-west of Port Perry. Lined by the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Ontario Greenbelt, Rural Scugog is a broad landscape of lush fields and green trees, perfect for nature and water lovers.

 

Community Highlight

King’s Bay Golf Club is a semi-private, 9-hole golf course located in Seagrave. King’s Bay makes the most of its pristine location on the shorelines of Lake Scugog and the Nonquon River by incorporating natural water hazards into its picturesque setting.

Located just 3 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 is 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.

  

What To Do Here

With a friendly atmosphere and a strong sense of community, the Seagrave and Greenbank area is known for its family-friendly setting and neighbourhoods. Residents are just a quick drive away from all of the amenities of Port Perry,the closest town.  Stroll down the streets of Historic Downtown Port Perry to shop the small boutique-style stores, go for a pint at Old Flame Brewery, enjoy a speciality cocktail and live music at Port Social, have a delicious meal at Harp and Wylie’s Grill house or Pickles and Olives, take in the lakefront views of Lake Scugog, or spend a night out at the Great Blue Heron Casino.

Tucked away you’ll find the Greenbank Restaurant serving authentic Japanese and Korean food- check out their online reviews on Trip Advisor or Yelp!
