The city of Barrie is well-known for its picturesque location, wrapped around an arm of Lake Simcoe. What it is less known for is its important place in history – both of Canada’s and the world’s! Named after a leader in the Canadian Navy, Barrie grew from a popular native portage, connecting Lake Simcoe to Georgian Bay, into a booming hub for British immigrants. It also offered a chance for a new start to some of the American slaves travelling the Underground Railroad. Walking through the city’s downtown, you can feel the vast history that these streets have seen.
While Barrie carries the charm of times passed, it is also on the radar for its recent growth explosion! Many subdivisions have been added at the south end of the city, allowing for easy commuting to the city of Toronto. As the demand for housing in Barrie increases, so do the number of renovation projects! That is where we come in, offering the latest in innovative kitchen, laundry and bathroom design. Make your new – or old – house the home of your dreams with our countless options in tiles and countertops. We specialize in combining all of these details in to a single design, allowing our customers to shop for everything they need in a one stop location.
Though many residents of Barrie head to the big city for work, not everyone in this metropolis is a commuter. Barrie is full of thriving industries and is the home of many head offices of the country’s most successful companies. It is also proud to accommodate Georgian College, allowing young and old to increase their knowledge. The institution partners with universities like Nippising and York to offer degree opportunities to Canadians in the area. More attractions keep Barrie locals in town, including a host of different festivals and shows. With titles like “Barrielicious” and “Ribfest and Craft Beer Show”, it’s easy to see that residents don’t have to look far to find a good time!
Barrie is a city of all seasons. With close proximity to many of the province’s best ski hills, locals will never be lacking for winter fun. A thriving waterfront with numerous beaches to choose from means the good times continue come the summer months. The city keeps a tight-knit feel by providing many different community centres, recreation centres, sport complexes and parks. These can be found throughout the many neighbourhoods of the municipality. As any resident will tell you, the city of Barrie has it all – views, amenities, convenience and heart!
