Brockville is located along the north side of the St. Lawrence River, and is centred between Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston, and Toronto.
Brockville’s location is also a prime spot for trips across the border, as there is a bridge within 20 minutes of us both east and westbound.
If you’re coming to visit us, be sure to check out some of our local attractions:
Check out Downtown Brockville
Downtown Brockville offers countless things to do, and our team is here to help you discover this beautiful city! Visit our Events page to learn more about Brockville’s upcoming events, or view our directory page to check out accommodation options within the city.
Brockville is one of the most culturally-rich regions in Ontario, boasting a lively art scene that draws in thousands of visitors every year. Visitors can head to the historic Brockville Arts Centre and enjoy one of the city’s highly anticipated plays or musical concerts.
Visit the Aquatarium
If you want to do something informative that’s also fun for the whole family, taking a trip to Brockville’s Aquatarium is ideal. You’ll be able to catch a glimpse of all the different types of fish found in the St. Lawrence River and get a diver’s eye view of a real shipwreck. There’s also a biosphere where you can learn all about the different plants and animals in the area. Those in need of some activities for the March break will be delighted to learn that the Aquatarium runs a fun-filled kids camp!
Visit Canada’s first railway tunnel
Canada’s first railway tunnel is a remarkable example of Canada’s pre-Confederation industrial heritage that has been repurposed for the benefit of recreation, tourism and economic development.
The tunnel is open from 9am-9pm, 7 days a week including holidays during its regular season.
Visit Museums and Shop collectibles
Brockville is at the heart of Ontario’s history, proudly displaying 19th-century architecture and offering tours of historical sites such as the Fulford Place, a magnificent 20,000-square-foot mansion built in 1899-1901. Senator George Taylor Fulford made millions of dollars from “Pink Pills for Pale People” – a patent medicine he manufactured in Brockville and sold around the world. There is no better way to dive into the past than by picking up a few precious collectible items or antiques from the several antique and thrift shops in downtown Brockville.
Spring into Flavour in Downtown Brockville
The perfect pairing isn’t just limited to food and wine…this year’s Spring Into Flavour is celebrating pairings of all sorts, from coffee and snacks to brewery favourites and delicious meals. Downtown Brockville invites you to their coffee shops, breweries, and more as you discover what your perfect pairings are! Join us from March 19-30 for Spring into Flavour!
Downtown Brockville has 2 hour complimentary parking on King Street and designated side streets. Street level signage shows where these spots are available. Two of these spaces are available on Market Street West right in front of the Visitor Centre. If you are going to be longer than 2 hours, please be sure to park in one of the municipal lots. Parking for over 2 hours in the free street parking is subject to a $20.00 fine. Please be advised that all other streets in Brockville are subject to 3 hour parking only.
Metered parking on the remainder of the streets is at the cost of $1.00 per hour. The meters only accept quarters, loonies and toonies. A good rule of thumb is “if you see a meter, feed a meter”.
