Brighton and the Area
Brighton, known as the 'gateway to Presqu'ile', is a quiet and friendly town located on the north shore of Lake Ontario just 90 minutes east of Toronto. With a population of over 4,700 people, the town enjoys big town amenities but with a small town feel.
Lake Ontario, The Apple Route, The Waterfront Trail and Presqu'ile Provincial Park are at your doorstep. The countryside, the picturesque rolling hills of Northumberland, is dotted with farms, wetlands, conservation areas, forests and meadows. Whether you're a land or water enthusiast - hiking, biking, golfing, lawn bowling, sailing, boating, fishing and bird watching - are just moments away.
Shopping is in town with a pharmacies, major grocery stores and many other handy retail outlets to meet your every need.
Choices exist for banking, insurance, legal and other financial services. Community involvement opportunities abound with churches, service organisations, social clubs, library, cultural and recreational facilities too numerous to list.
Here are just some of the many events and activities to enjoy:
Applefest, Waterfowl Festival, Proctor-Simpson Barn Theatre, Proctor House Museum, Waterfront Festival, Street Dance, Winterfest, Farmers Market, Rural Ramble, and antique shopping.
Hospitals are located to the east in Trenton, Belleville and Kingston and to the west in Cobourg and Oshawa. Trenton Memorial Hospital, part of Quinte Health Care is a 15 minute drive from downtown Brighton.
Of special significance is the new state-of-the-art facility, Brighton Health Services Centre, located in downtown Brighton. In addition to health care and diagnostic services, BHSC has a YMCA program. Other health care providers and services are available within the town and the surrounding area.
Our Mill Pond Woods development is located within walking distance of two waterfront restaurants, a marina, two public boat launch facilities, the Waterfront Trail, and the newly opened Tobey Link section of the Butler Creek trail. Presqui’le Provincial Park is an enjoyable bike ride away. And downtown Brighton is only a five minute car ride or a twenty minute walk on paved sidewalks.
In Brighton, residents of Mill Pond Woods will discover and enjoy an environment and lifestyle - second to none. Come see the difference.
