Picton offers excellent shopping facilities, live theatre, fine heritage homes and public buildings, a beautiful harbour and marina as well as six municipal parks including the grand Macaulay Heritage Park. As the seat of government for Prince Edward County, Picton houses the District Court and Land Registry Office. Incorporated in 1837, Picton is Prince Edward County’s Town. Prior to that date, the separate villages of Picton and Hallowell Bridge occupied opposite sides of Picton Bay.

Walk, run or bike on the Millennium Trail – a former railway that’s been converted into a multipurpose trail. You’ll pass by farmers fields, forests and creeks, not to mention marshes that are teeming with wildlife like frogs, turtles, beavers, and birds. A great spot to take the dog for a long walk or just to get out and enjoy nature for a while. Status in 2017 The Trail is a work in progress but only the 11 km stretch in and around Wellington from Danforth Rd. east to Cty. Rd. 2 is good for cycling. The stretch from there east to Picton is rough but passable. The stretch to the west from Danforth becomes impassable, at times under water and muddy, and rocky. The plan is to have the entire trail completed in two years time. The trail system serves as a County wide recreational facility for local residents, visitors and to provide access for farm vehicles by adjacent land owners. The trail corridor is 15 meters in width and 49 kilometers in length and a total land area of 73.5 hectares. The trail starts in Carrying Place and winds through the County to Picton with various vistas and […]

The Crystal Palace is unique in North America. This building is located in the Fair Grounds on Main Street, Picton. The Crystal Palace, built in 1890 by F.T. Wright based on a plan by Andrew Irving, adopted its name from the original Crystal Palace created by Sir Joseph Paxton in 1851 for the Great Exhibition in London England. Paxton’s design of expansive glass was inspired by his work with greenhouses. Following the Great Exhibition, “Crystal Palaces” sprang up throughout the world including New York City and in Napanee and Kingston. During the 1980s demolition of the Picton Crystal Palace was considered. The Historical Society prepared a report on the restoration of the building and in 1990 County staff began repairs under the supervision of Bert Blackford. The building re-opened in 1997 and remains one of the few original Crystal Palaces in the world. Book the Crystal Palace for your special event. This historic, rustic facility is perfect for special events, themed galas and weddings. Located in the heart of Picton, the Crystal Palace is a beautiful venue with natural lighting and wood floors. Bookings are limited to the months of May through October due to the lack of heating capabilities in the facility. Windows take up the […]
