An idyllic village home to around 3,000 residents and bursting with pioneer history.


Nestled in the heart of the Township of Springwater, Midhurst is an idyllic village home to around 3,000 residents. Bursting with pioneer history, the village was originally known as “Oliver’s Mills” after George Oliver’s many saw and grist mills and later renamed “Midhurst” after the town of West Sussex, England. The name means “among the wooded hills” in old English.
Residents of Midhurst thrive with a calm and community-oriented lifestyle, taking full advantage of the natural beauty of rural Ontario while only a few minutes’ drive from downtown Barrie. Not to be outdone, Midhurst is home to many recreational facilities, shops, and no shortage of natural parks dotted with little pieces of history.

Doran Park and the nearby Green Pine Park, connected by the Hunter Russell Trail and Willow Creek, make for a picturesque hike. The Simcoe County Museum, Barrie Sports Complex, Springwater Public Library, and a smattering of local eateries are never far away.
