Owen Sound, Ontario: Canada's "Scenic City"

The city of Owen Sound, Ontario, known as "the scenic city" has a population of 22,000 (census agglomeration 32,000) and lies on a bay which share the city's name on the southern part of Georgian Bay. It is the county seat of Grey County. The city's downtown and main urban core is in a valley-like setting, at the bottom of huge hills from the Niagara Escarpment. I took these pictures in the early fall of 2005.

Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre, the city's 3,500 seat arena, home to the Owen Sound Attack of the junior Ontario Hockey League. They won the championship in 2011. Owen Sound is the smallest city in Ontario to support an OHL team, but their fans are the best in the league.

Thanks for the tour, Jay! I've heard of Owen Sound all my life, but didn't know what it looked like. You really do get around!

Thanks, TB! Yeah, I go up to the Sound quite frequently to see Attack games, it's always a good time up there. These pictures are a bit outdated. I'll have to head back up there soon and take more updated pictures!

Thanks, too, christos-greece!
