About New Tecumseth, Ontario Real Estate
Where an older farming community and a modern village intersect.
Formed in 1991, New Tecumseth encompasses the villages of Tottenham and Beeton, as well as Tecumseth Township and Alliston. Within the historical region of Huronia, New Tecumseth residents enjoy the views of Lake Huron, the Bruce Peninsula, and the Georgian Bay. The town is a mix of families and retirees who enjoy the peacefulness the community has to offer. A building boom following the turn of the 21st century brought an additional 4,000 single-family homes to the area, offering an alternative to some of the older Victorian and farm homes here.

Things to Do
When the weather permits, there are a lot of outside activities in New Tecumseth. For golfers, the Woodington Lake Golf Club offers a new 18-hole Legacy Course. The semi-private 36-hole facility is considered one of the finest in Ontario. But there is more to the club than golf. Some areas are also available for private events, offering a perfect location for a wedding or corporate event.
If walking or jogging is your thing, the Gibson Hills trail is a 1.4-mile designated walk. Rated as a medium climb, the elevation gain here is about 193.5 ft.
In season, the Tottenham Conservation area offers a variety of hikes along the Trans Canada trail. There are quite a few picnic pavilions and campsites available by reservation. A sandy beach lies next to the pond where you can launch your canoe or ride a pedal boat. Catch and release-fishing are allowed for those with a valid fishing license. The Conservation area is just a 10-minute walk from Tottenham where convenience stores and shopping are available.
The Conservation area is also home to the annual Tottenham Bluegrass Festival held in June every year since 1983. The three-day event attracts bluegrass bands from throughout Canada and the U.S.
Yet another favorite area for hiking, canoeing, and fishing is Earl Rowe Provincial Park. While some of the park is open year-round, some is limited by the season. Each fall salmon spawning can be viewed at the park's fish ladder. Similarly, trout can be found in the spring. The park also offers group campsites, RV, and car camping.
Each year in July, the Tottenham community comes together for Community Week in affiliation with Canada Day, and the Tottenham Street Festival. Downtown streets close for traffic the day of the festival allowing for a full day of entertainment including local merchant booths, kids' rides, face painting, games, and lots of food!
