Community Services and Events


People in Norfolk County are understandably proud of their communities.  Whether you choose to live in Port Rowan, the Villages of Long Point Bay, Long Point or any of the other communities in Long Point Country, you’ll find community services that live up to the area’s proud heritage.

Norfolk County offers many community services for its residents.  There are programs that meet the needs of all residents, regardless of age or ability.  For example, there are a variety of programs that include walking, cycling, swimming and tai chi, and that’s just the beginning.

The Simcoe Recreation Centre Pool offers the opportunity for some water activities.  The Norfolk County Arenas offer ice skating for young and old.  If you’re looking for exercise classes, you have your choice of Tai Chi, Cardio Blast aerobics, kickboxing, and the list goes on.

Love to walk, but need company?  The “Discover Norfolk” Walking Club is for you.  It’s a great way to meet people, get exercise and see different parts of the County.  It’s an informal group that organizes  walks on local trails and visits to local points of interest.

If reading is one of your favorite activities, you can get involved with the public libraries.  There are programs for children, teens and adults.  The county library system is adding online resources all the time.  You can even download audiobooks at 2am if the spirit moves you.

For boaters, there are two county marinas that offer secured fenced grounds, lift, pump out and storage services, along with washrooms and showers.

There are numerous groups for those of us who have been around for a while.  You might like the Simcoe Seniors’ Centre 50+ Club.  Meet your neighbors and participate in a variety of activities including crafts, chess, table tennis and line dancing.

Besides bringing people together for fun and exercise, the County also provides Fire & Rescue Services, Emergency Services and a farmer’s market.  

Twenty-five percent of the land in Norfolk County is forest.  To maintain that land in good condition for now and the future, the county Forestry Division takes great pride in its conservation efforts.  In fact, with the establishment the first Forestry Station in Canada, Norfolk County has been recognized by the Canadian Forestry Association.

Overall, Norfolk County is just a great place to live.  If you’re looking for strong communities, natural beauty and an active lifestyle, we can help you find the perfect home in this amazing location.  Call us at 519-586-2626, or use the form below to send an email.
