This rapidly expanding community found on the west end of Barrie is home to some of the region’s most stunning woodland trails. With new developments every year, plenty of options for schools, and easily accessible outdoor recreation, Ardagh is a perfect neighbourhood for young families.
Named for the kilometres of trails and hundreds of acres of forest comprising the idyllic Ardagh Bluffs that it’s built around, it’s also next door to tons of local attractions, restaurants, and other amenities.
Year-round hiking, biking, and trailblazing are always mere steps away in Ardagh. Young children will love the unique playgrounds found in Ardagh’s verdant green parks, while older kids and teens can spend the day at Delta Force Paintball just outside the city. After dark, Ol’ West Wing provides some of the best wings and atmosphere in all of Barrie, while local pizza joint, Cocelli Pizza is always a superb choice for a late-night slice.
