Taking a rest in Sensational Smiths Falls

A community known for its small town friendliness and big city charm, Smiths Falls welcomes you to discover the true lifestyle of a Canadian summer. Located only an hour away from the Nation’s Capital, Smiths Falls gives residents and visitors the perfect community to sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature, unspoiled by the boom of the Town’s industrial heritage.

A Natural Life Twelve parks, and three trailheads throughout the community showcase the Heart of the Rideau Canal- a UNESCO World Heritage Destination, and the active pursuits of sports and outdoor enthusiasts. Built in 1826, this is the best preserved slack water canal in the world, and the only one from the 19th century canal building era that still operates along its original watercourse, with its original structures intact. All summer long you will see visitors from around the world, travelling through our three lock stations, everyone from boating and nature enthusiasts, collectors, historians, paddlers to first time explorers and we’re thrilled to see so many visit us again and again.

Recreational Hub Ask any local and they will tell you, Smiths Falls is a

Town for sports and recreation year round. During the summer months the ball diamonds, soccer pitches, tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, lawn bowling lanes and golf courses are bursting with activity. Join the crowd in cheering on the home teams. The enthusiasm for sport is infectious to young and old. We truly benefit from a community that loves to stay active and have fun, at all ages and abilities.

A Heritage Centre Smiths Falls offers residents and visitors a glimpse into our strong heritage at three exceptional museums. Originally granted in 1786 to United Empire Loyalist, Thomas Smyth, the Town was shaped by the fortitude of our early settlers, and the unique characteristics of a canal and train boom. These three areas are highlighted alongside other artistic and cultural exhibitions at our museums: the Heritage House Museum, Rideau Canal Museum and the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario. The museums are an integral destination for your true understanding and appreciation for this community. Dedicated staff and volunteers bring to life the stories of the past and present and all the museums work together to offer discounts and prizes as our true passport to “Fun in the Falls”.

Downtown Beauty As you take a stroll along our downtown streets you will notice a harmonious blend of traditional and modern architecture styles that delight the senses with small cafes, courtyards, and shops to explore. Downtown walking tours showcase our key architectural gems and sites of historical significance for the Town. Perhaps your interests will lead you to many of our floral or mural displays, including Centennial Park, home of 100,000 blooms. Picturesque water fountain backdrops and seasonal blooms await your next picnic in the park.
