MPP Norm Miller is getting the message out there that Parry Sound-Muskoka is the place to be this March Break.

This week, Miller rose in the Ontario Legislature to highlight the March Break activities available in the riding.

This is the complete address before the Legislature by the Parry Sound-Muskoka MPP at Queen’s Park:

I invite members of this Legislature, viewers and all Ontarians to take part in some of the great activities available in Parry Sound–Muskoka this March break.

March brings the beginning of maple syrup season around Ontario. Local groups have come together to create the Muskoka Maple Trail to help you plan your visit.

To find places to see the trees being tapped and the sap being boiled down and to taste the delicious, sweet syrup and candy, visit

This year, the winter weather has provided many other great winter activities across Parry Sound–Muskoka.

Enjoy a day of alpine skiing at Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area, where all 15 runs are open and in great shape.

If cross-country skiing is more your speed, plan to visit Georgian Nordic ski trails north of Parry Sound on Highway 124, the Gravenhurst KOA or Bracebridge Resource Management Centre.

Arrowhead Provincial Park, north of Huntsville, offers a variety of activities, with cross-country skiing, snowshoe trails, a wonderful 1.3-kilometre ice-skating trail, and a brand new visitors’ centre.

Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh near Bala offers another skating trail as well as pond hockey rinks and wagon rides.

Snowmobile trails are also in great shape across the region but remember: No matter how wintry and cold it has been, ice can always be dangerous, so make sure that you know the local conditions.

For an indoor activity, don’t forget to check out the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame in Parry Sound.

I hope everyone comes to visit Parry Sound–Muskoka this March break.

Norm Miller, Parry Sound-Muskoka MPP
