Nestled on the northern shores of Great Lakes, Owen Sound has a rich history of integrating the natural beauty of this area with modern developments. Throughout its history, Owen Sound was renowed for it seaport, which gained it the nickname "Chicago of the North." Although modern-day Owen Sound isn't as sprawling as its namesake counterpart, its culture and relaxed atmosphere make it an attraction destination for pleasure-seekers and those seeking to relocate their home.

Owen Sound - Peace of the North. As its seaport activity dwindled, Canadians began flocking to Owen Sound for its tranquility and peace. In fact, its official nickname is currently, "The Scenic City." After spending one day in this quaint city, you'll soon understand why.

There are few places in Southern Ontario that feature the natural beauty of Owen Sound. Due to its proximity to the massive Great Lakes, natural beauty and outdoor activities abound. Those seeking an outdoor adventure vacation, that's still relaxing and calm, will fall in love with Owen Sound.

Unlike other cities, Owen Sound has perfected the integration of city life and natural green spaces. This is made evident at Harrison Park. This urban park features over 40 hectares of gardens, trails, playgrounds, forest and streams. Known as the "Jewel in the Crown," Harrison Park is the greatest outdoor attraction in Owen Sound. Where else can you go from having a freshly made latte to exploring nature in pure solitude within a 10 minute walk?

Although Owen Sound has a current population of under 50,000, its job and real estate market make it an attraction option for retirees and new graduates. It's this wide mix of ages that make Owen Sound so unique and enjoyable. With a real estate market expected to continually grow stronger, this is perhaps one of the greatest hidden secrets of Canada. In fact, in a 2006 episode of "The Colbert Report," Stephen asked viewers to mail in negative remarks about Owen Sound. The results? No negative remarks worth any merit were submitted.
