Feversham Ontario Visited
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
We had driven through Feverham, but had never visited it!
Actually, it was very natural for us to “pass through” Feversham.
Feversham is located on Grey County Road 2 and it’s the road that we normally take when we go south to Toronto and points east.
On the way through Feversham we pass the Ice River Springs bottling plant. It’s the major industry in the area.
Ice River Springs and the Osprey Community Centre are the 2 main complexes on Grey County Road 2 in Feversham.
However, if you turn east, you drive right into the small downtown area.
Feversham is quaint, with a mixture of shops, residential and parks.
Feversham is part of the amalgamated “Grey Highlands“. Area that includes several other smaller communities.
Like I indicated, it’s a community that includes residential homes and rural farms.
In the middle of this there is a beautiful park!
It’s very serene, with wildlife (ducks and geese).
This pond area is part is the Beaver River.
Water wheel churning with the flow of the river.
Birds enjoying the park!
On the outskirts of the village there’s a combined shop, “Tippy Canoe” and “Home Accent Emporium“.
“Tippy Canoe” is a fun store that includes a small cafe and a fun gift area.
The “Home Accent Emporium” features a variety of interesting products, great for home!
Back out onto Grey County Road 2, we cross the bridge the goes over the Feversham Gorge. This is part of the Madeleine Graydon Memorial Conservation Area.
We ventured into the Gorge area and walked down a steep path that eventually took us to the bottom of the Gorge and the Beaver River. The Madeleine Graydon Memorial Conservation Area is part of the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority.
Just past the Conservation Area is the Osprey Recreation Centre.
The Osprey Recreation Centre offers the community a variety of activities and events. The annual Feversham Fall Fair is held at the Centre.
