Located halfway between Sarnia and Grand Bend, Forest has long been known as the shopping destination for both our rural and urban communities. It also serves the needs of the numerous campers, cottagers, and day trippers who frequent Bluewaterland.
Visit Forest and you will experience the best of small town Ontario. Our charming, historical architecture pays homage to our past while our retail businesses and restaurants provide personal and friendly service. The recently and beautifully upgraded Kineto Theatre, one of the oldest continuously operating movie theatres in the world, draws in patrons from all over. We are also very proud to showcase the talents of local artists as well as the town’s heritage and vision of its future with the addition to our streetscape of “The Mural Walk”.
If recreation is what you are after, the beckoning beaches of Lake Huron are nearby and The Shores Recreation Centre provides modern facilities, housing an arena, gymnasium, fitness centre and indoor walking track. Be sure to also explore our easily accessible trails, including one along the old Grand Trunk Railway line.
We hope you now have a sense of just some of what awaits you in Forest… besides our trees that is! Be sure to pay us a visit soon and enjoy our hospitality!
