A town of infinite opportunities.
The “gateway” to growing Innisfil Township, Innisfil By The Beach (Alcona) is the perfect new home community for those who want the best that Ontario has to offer. Historically a rural area, Innisfil’s residential community has been growing from a lakeside cottage and farming community to a premiere residential area since it offers commuting proximity to Barrie and Toronto, its own inspired civic infrastructure, and the tranquil beauty of a lakeside small-town community.
Innisfil. Become part of a community that combines the best of historic tradition and modern civic ammenities.
Families will enjoy Summerfest at nearby Innisfil Beach Park which offers midway rides, amusements, craft vendors and a fireworks show; something for kids of all ages the first week of June. Innisfil’s Got Talent provides opportunities for all local talents, and in November local artists open their Studio Tours to the public; showcasing their work and highlighting the area’s hospitality. A Polar Bear Dip, Snowmobile Races and Ice Hockey in the Park round out a year of community events in February’s Winterfest.
Development Opportunities abound for the small business planner and franchisee. The Township of Innisfil is well equipped to help new business owners become a vibrant part of this growing community. The township has adopted a plan of community, culture, tourism and economic growth, “Inspiring Innisfil 2020,” that brings together leadership curltural and economic benefits for residents and visitors to the area.
Besides Alcona's own growing commercial district, nearby commercial centres include Cookstown, a well-known destination for antique seekers and outlet shoppers, offering up some of the best known brands at value pricing. Cooktown’s “Wing-Ding” annual garage sale held the first weekend of June is heralded as the harbinger of summer for many Innisfil residents. Equally popular is the Barrie Atuomotive Flea Market held early June and September in Burls Creek Family Event Park. The City of Barrie provides an easy trip to a safe, modern municipality, with shops, restaurants, and entertainment, built on the foundation and charm of a turn of the century Ontario metropolis.
