Living in Ward 1

Geographically, it includes shoreline on the top of Lake Simcoe and on the southern tip of Lake Couchiching, as it includes several small, calm bays and the Narrows. This neighborhood takes in memorable neighborhoods including Orchard Point, Sophie’s Landing and Parkside Estates. The city takes advantage of the natural beauty of this area. Tudhope Park features spaces for baseball and slo-pitch, trails for walkers and cyclists, an incredible sandy beach and a splash pad and playground.  

Homes in old Atherley date from a variety of eras, from just after the Second World War through many decades, with some very new additions interspersed as sites were redeveloped.
