When I see a headline like the one above I have to read on…you should, too!
After an assessment of county-wide venues for hosting events and accommodating the athletes, coaches, officials and guests in venues and facilities throughout the County of Haliburton, a formal bid submission to the Sport Alliance of Ontario was made.
“This is an exciting event and we are thrilled to present our bid to Sport Alliance of Ontario.” said the Warden, Eleanor Harrison. “In addition to promoting sports among the youth of Ontario, we will also be able to showcase our beautiful County to the rest of the Province.”
Haliburton County is located 2 ½ hours northeast of Toronto and 3 ½ hours west of Ottawa. Its central location and stunning setting make it the perfect location for the Ontario Summer Games.
The Haliburton bid presents an opportunity for a unique games experience for the athletes. In addition to offering professional, regulation courses for each event, the Haliburton Highlands presents a beautiful backdrop of lakes, forests and rugged terrain. The athletes will also be treated to distinctive outdoor experiences such as guided hikes and canoe trips, astronomy tours, as well as live entertainment by local musicians.
