Owen Sound

Owen Sound is the largest urban community in Grey Bruce, with a population of approximately 23,000. Owen Sound sits on the shores of Georgian Bay, at the intersection of Highways 6, 10, 21, and 26. With its stunning views of the bay, tranquil rivers, and extensive parks, it’s easy to see why it’s called “The Scenic City.”
