Discovery Harbour traces its roots back to the original British naval and military base in Penetanguishene, built to safeguard access to Upper Canada after the War of 1812. “His Majesty’s Naval Establishment on Lake Huron”, (as it was first called) kept ships prepared to supply British posts to the northwest. By 1820, it was home to over 70 people, including sailors, officers, shipwrights, and soldiers. Five large ships, 15 smaller vessels, and numerous workshops and dwellings were built. In 1828, a British garrison on Drummond Island was relocated to Penetanguishene. By 1834, Canada was defended exclusively by these forces. An impressive stone Officers’ Quarters was built in 1845. The military occupied the site until 1856.

At inRcity Ball they are creating a new faster, positionless game of basketball. With a 3 on 3 format it allows players to develop more creative individual skills and puts the ball in each player’s hands more often. Having no coaches or positions takes the pressure away from the players and allows freedom to try some things that are usually only seen in the driveway and lots of fun. To go along with their play style, they have also downsized the courts to 50 feet long and 30 feet wide. At inRcity, they feel that this will improve dribbling and passing skills along with speed and quicker reactions as the defense will have easier recovery and contest their opponents faster. To add on to the smaller courts they also have lowered the nets! The nets are adjustable from 7 feet to 10 feet with full 72 inch glass backboards! This will allow younger/smaller players to develop a proper shooting form and make it easier to score! Have fun and enjoy the game of basketball with some friends and meet new people and players along the way! Stay active and have fun playing basketball with no pressure to play a perfect […]

Ontario’s first European Community, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons was the headquarters for the French Jesuit Mission to the Huron Wendat people. In 1639, the Jesuits, along with French lay workers, began construction of a fenced community that included barracks, a church, workshops, residences, and a sheltered area for Native visitors. By 1648, Sainte-Marie was a wilderness home to 66 French men, representing one-fifth of the entire population of New France. Today throughout July and August, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons is pleased to offer fun and informative demonstrations and “hands-on” activities that share aspects of life in the 17th century, including 17th century fire-starting, historic clothing and medicine, native games, 17th century music, historic cooking, and more.

The Simcoe County Museum was created in 1928 by Women’s Institute members Mrs. C.P. Stocking and Mrs. R.A. Sutherland.

Over the years, the museum has grown significantly, and now is composed of a five gallery facility with sixteen outdoor heritage and display buildings.
