5 Things We Love About Midhurst

Picture your summer: mornings spent paddling or swimming, evenings at barbeques with neighbours, or leisurely walks with the dog. That’s just an average day in Midhurst, a small community nestled minutes away from Barrie, Ontario, within the Township of Springwater, with our Midhurst Valley community at the heart of it all.

Living in Midhurst Valley comes with the benefit of being near four-season attractions.

Here are five reasons why we can’t get enough of this charming town:

1. Four-Season Recreation: Midhurst offers endless outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and skiing. Nature lovers flock to Springwater Provincial Park, while golf enthusiasts enjoy the top-rated Vespra Hills Golf Club. Thrill-seekers can indulge in treetop trekking at Horseshoe Valley Resort or, in the winter, hit the slopes at Snow Valley Ski Resort and other nearby hills.
