prince edward county: Did Prince Edward County Make the Right Decision? - 03/13/13 04:03 AM
The Prince Edward County council met last night and decided to reduce the development charges by 50% in both the rural and urban areas of the county. At present the development charges for a newly built three bedroom home are a little over $18,000, and this will be reduced to approximately $12,000.
Initially the plan was to only offer this reduction in the urban high service areas, but it was decided to extend the break to the entire county. There has always been a bit of a difference of opinion in the county as residents try to balance economic growth with the … (4 comments)

prince edward county: Roblin Lake, Prince Edward County - 02/18/13 02:51 AM
Perhaps it would have made more sense if I had come here in the summer and taken some nice pictures, and maybe I will, but I also believe there is a certain beauty in winter. Perhaps it's because nobody else is around and I'm in a rather contemplative mood. Or maybe because I just happen to be driving by and had my camera handy. This is Roblin Lake, a small inland lake in Prince Edward County. It's very beautiful in the summer, there's a small beach here, and sometimes people come here for a swim, the water's very clean. Usually.
Until … (6 comments)

prince edward county: Mariners Park Museum, Prince Edward County - 09/06/12 03:12 AM
Mariners Park Museum is located near South Bay in Prince Edward County. It's one of those interesting places where you can walk around and feel like you're the only person in the world, a bit like Euro Disneyland, except without the rides. This is the appeal of Prince Edward County though, there's rarely a rush here.
The museum is basically an outdoor collection of some of the more interesting artifacts from the County's maritime history.  More than two thirds of all shipwrecks in Lake Ontario have occured in the waters just off of Prince Edward County. Over 50 wrecks have been … (5 comments)

prince edward county: Lake On The Mountain, Prince Edward County - 09/05/12 02:31 AM
Lake on the Mountain in Prince Edward County is about a five minute drive from Picton on the way to the Glenora ferry. It's a great half hour stop (unless you happen to be having your lunch or dinner at the Lake on the Mountain Resort - a fabulous restaurant that serves some of the great local Prince Edward County wines), in which case I'm sure you'll be staying a bit longer.
Lake on the Mountain is a natural oddity that sits 203 feet above the Bay of Quinte with no visible source of the water. The Mohawks believed the lake was … (6 comments)

prince edward county: Barley Days in Prince Edward County - 08/30/12 08:16 AM
The latter half of the nineteenth century, specifically 1860 - 1890 was a very prosperous time for Prince Edward County, an era now called the barley days.
Barley grown in the County had always been favoured by American brewers in New York who believed that it was of a superior quality to any other barley grown on the continent. One third of all farmland in the County was used for growing barley, and at its peak, the County was shipping 50,000 bushels a day to the port of Oswego in New York. When the civil war developed south of the border in … (2 comments)

prince edward county: The Little Bluff Conservation Area in Prince Edward County - 08/29/12 02:59 AM
Little Bluff Conservation Area is one of those hidden gems in Prince Edward County. It's down at the southern end of the County where things are very quiet and people (other than the near-by residents) rarely go. I have been there over a dozen times and have yet to see another soul (other than my dog) using this amazing conservation area. The southern end of Prince Edward County is very sparsely populated, so not a whole lot of traffic ever gets out that way. I remember reading a newspaper article a while ago that described the area as being "bucolic" and … (3 comments)

prince edward county: North Beach Provincial Park - 08/03/12 07:22 AM
North Beach Provincial Park is one of the great locations in Prince Edward County that makes this county such a popular summer time destination in southern Ontario. The beach here is very similar to the one at Sandbanks Provincial Park, just not as large, and it doesn't get as crowded on hot days. It is still a large beach though, and it features over 3 kilometers of sand.
One of the special things about North Beach is that it's more or less a large strip of land with water on both sides. One side fronts onto Lake Ontario while the other … (4 comments)

prince edward county: Huyck's Point in Prince Edward County - 10/03/11 08:46 AM
Huyck's Point is one of those little treasures in Prince Edward County that isn't very well known to people who don't live in the area.
Prince Edward County has a lot of beautiful waterfront and some very nice beaches (among the finest in the province) such as North Beach and Sandbanks Provincial Park, however, this beach is a little more rugged and very rarely do I ever encounter another soul. It really is off the beaten track.
This is a perfect place to let your dog off the leash and let her splash around in the water. I always see evidence … (7 comments)
