Picton

Prince Edward County is a unique island located in Southeastern Ontario (south of highway 401). The island is surrounded by over 800 km of coastline and attaches to the mainland by bridges and a ferry. This picture perfect community has a population of 25,000 but sees many tourists over the summer months.

Prince Edward County has become Ontario’s newest wine region.  The weather and soil make it an ideal location for grape growers.  In 2000, there was only one winery. Today, there are six, offering both retail centers and manufacturing operations.

Water is everywhere in the County!  It’s perfect for enjoying shipwreck diving, kayaking, boating and other fun summer water sports.  Enjoy the sand and sun at The Sandbanks Provincial Park.  The park offers camping facilities and has three different beaches to choose from. It is also considered to be one of the most significant fresh water dune systems in the world. Cycling has become very popular along the many “bike friendly” roads and trails.

Quinte Healthcare Prince Edward County Memorial is a 38 bed hospital and houses the Kingston General Hospital, MacSteven Dialysis Unit.
