Sunset Point Park in Collingwood

Posted by Sherry Rioux on September 17, 2008

If you are thinking of looking at property for sale in Collingwood, then you know how important location can be.  Living close to a park or near the waterfront will add a big premium to the price tag but for some, it may be well worth it.

One of the nicest parks in Collingwood surely must be Sunset Point located on the waterfront.

In addition to a rocky beach, the park features beautiful trails, lots of parking, a canteen, washrooms, large expanses of grassland, picnic tables and terrific views over Georgian Bay.  There is also a marvelous playground called the EnviroPark.  It’s a miniature Collingwood including play equipment depicting a water treatment plant, water tower, general store, town hall, industry, agriculture land and harbour. The Parks goal is to educate how to use water wisely; how it is converted; how it is used; and where it goes in the house. It also educates on the function of a sewage treatment plant and what it can and cannot do. The Pavilion area, including the volleyball courts, can be rented for reunions and other occasions.

One of the most prominent features of “The Point” is a large Inukshuk that looks out to the Bay.  It was built as a tribute to a popular young man named Pete Crompton who was killed at age 27 in a boating accident in 2003.  Windsurfing was his passion and this magnificent piece of public art would seem a fitting reminder of a life well lived.

This really is a gem of a place that offers something for everyone.

    Hi Dianna
    Since it is a municipal park, I would suggest you get in touch with the special events department of the Town of Collingwood. You can call them at (705) 445-9463. Good luck and congratulalions.

    Hi. I was just wondering if you knew any details on the Inukshuk- size, weight, who built it etc. I know why it was built (beautiful) but just wanted a few of the details 🙂
    Thanks, Tina
