Barrie has a beautiful waterfront and it is worth the time to get out and go for a walk in the area. The city has put some money into the waterfront and it looks great and is a wonderful place to walk.

Super area for families. Barrie is doing a great, as yet unfinished, job with their waterfront. Great scenery and right in the heart of downtown
