About Prescott

| |

Prescott is rich in culture and heritage. We have waterfront access to the majestic St. Lawrence River, are home to Fort Wellington (a national historical site), and have over 75 historic homes and sites, each with a story to tell. 


Our beautiful waterfront attracts many visitors every year. With a bustling marina and harbour through the summer months, where residents and tourists alike enjoy the waterfront lifestyle. One of our most popular amenities is the walking and cycling path that links with the new RiverWalk Park and spans the shore of the St. Lawrence River.


An active lifestyle is something we offer to residents with amenities such as The Prescott Golf Club, Prescott Tennis Club, various hockey leagues, an active swimming team and other sports and recreational activities.

Arts and culture

Prescott is home to the Grenville County Historical Society, Forwarders' Museum and Info Centre and plays host to the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival through the summer months of July and August.

Eat and shop

There are over 100 unique shops, services and restaurants in our RiverWalk District and many well-known favourites uptown as well.
