Visit Collingwood

and the surrounding areas of the Georgian Bay Triangle

The Town of Collingwood is situated on the southern waters of the scenic Georgian Bay and lies within close proximity to Blue Mountain, an area renowned for its recreational facilities and tourist attractions. The nearby town of Wasaga Beach has the longest strip of freshwater beach found anywhere in the world and one of its parks, Wasaga Beach Provincial Park, was named a Biosphere Reserve in 2004.

Collingwood, Ontario is located directly in the heart of cottage country within the boundaries of Northern Simcoe County and is known for its serene, harbour-front walkways and colourful art galleries.

Collingwood’s full-time resident population has increased dramatically over the past six years with 13% recorded growth between 2011-2017, while the entire Georgian Bay Triangle area swells to approximately 85,000 people each summer. Many residents maintain a strong appreciation for the performing arts sector with continued active participation as soloists, music teachers, choristers and fans.

Avoiding Highway 400

If you’re heading to Collingwood from the GTA, and you’d like to avoid Highway 400, there are a number of alternate routes you can check out. The Gore Road (County Road 8) and Dixie Road (County Road 4/12/7) will both take you north to Highway 9, where you can join Airport Road just east of Orangeville. Going north on Airport Road will take you right into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood.
You can also head west on Highway 89 and join up with Airport Road just west of Rosemont, and head north into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood. Keep in mind there are a number of other festivals taking place in Simcoe County this weekend, and area roads may be busy.

Roundabouts

Highway 26 has several roundabouts in the Collingwood area. A roundabout is a circular intersection where two or more roads meet. Traffic circulates through them counter-clockwise, to the right of a centre island. All entering vehicles must yield to traffic already in the roundabout. For more information on roundabouts, visit the Ministry of Transportation website. http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/ontario-511/roundabouts.shtml
