Downtown Barrie is a hub of culture and entertainment, home to the courthouse, public library, and City Hall. The area offers many independently owned shops and boutiques, delectable restaurants, and trendy bars. Whether you’re looking for a quiet evening of fine dining by the lake or a more lively night out at a club, this neighbourhood has something to offer you! Catch a play at Five Points Theatre or an art show at MacLaren Art Centre any time of the year, or soak up the sunshine listening to live summertime music at Meridian Place, strolling through the farmers market, or exploring one of many outdoor festivals and events. The community abuts the vivacious waterfront with parks and trails and offers many mature tree-lined streets with a mix of historic homes and newer construction.
