Welcome to the Municipality of North Perth

North Perth's challenging 27-hole golf course is home to Corey Conners, Amateur Champ at the 2015 Masters in Augusta, making his professional debut in April.

Welcome to North Perth - a "Community of Character." Travel along endless roads and enjoy the array of beautiful landscapes that Mother Nature handpaints throughout the seasons. As well as rural charm, North Perth also has town life down pat. Listowel's bustling business section has many shops for women's fashions, jewellery, home décor and chocolate, as well as restaurants. If you love to knit, crochet or weave, stop by Spinrite's factory outlet to see why it's considered "yarn heaven."

Athletic types can take in a hockey game, curling, broomball, or ringette at any of the numerous sportsplexes, ball diamonds and soccer fields. There are golf courses, parks to picnic and play in, a skatepark, community pools to swim in and a splash pad for tiny tots.

If you enjoy being at one with nature, discover the hidden beauty along 22 kilometres of hiking trails throughout North Perth that link communities such as Gowanstown, Henfryn, Listowel and Atwood. Choose your mode of transportation, be it cycling, horseback riding, crosscountry skiing or snowmobiling.

North Perth celebrates life and culture through a number of local festivals. In March, start by celebrating your Irish Roots or just become Irish for the day by going to Paddyfest, North America's largest Irish festival. Be sure to visit in June with your favourite childhood confidante in tow to attend the Annual North Perth Teddy Bear Family Play Day at Listowel Memorial Park.

Monkton's Rhubarb Festival, held in June, invites sampling of all kinds of goodies made from locally grown rhubarb. Make sure you stick around for the outhouse races - this hilariously entertaining mode of transportation is sure to be a topic of conversation for years to come! In October, go on a scary Witches Walk in nearby Atwood, with three trails through 15 acres of forest and many ghostly friends who say "Boo!"
