Getting to Know the Township of North Dumfries

The picturesque township of North Dumfries is a thriving mixture of farms, villages and small businesses.  

With rolling countrysides and scenic waterways, North Dumfries is a go-to destination for recreation and relaxation. Walk, drive, paddle or cycle your way through the township’s natural landscapes. Spend a day on the links at Whistle Bear Golf Club, or check out rare Charitable Research Reserve – a 900-acre nature reserve where you’ll find over 24 different types of habitats that are home to an array of plants and animals.  

In the town of Ayr you’ll experience friendly, small-time charm blended together with a community that’s growing as quickly as the village itself. Spend time here and relax over a craft beverage at Willibald Farm Distillery & Brewery. Ayr may have a small-town feel, but its historical homes and heritage feel have made a big impression on TV and film producers – Murdoch Mysteries and the Stephen King miniseries 11/22/63 were shot in Ayr.  

Explore the township’s farm gates, enjoy a meal and a craft beverage, discover boutique shops and spend some time in nature. The Township of North Dumfries welcomes you!
