The City of Barrie is widely known to be the central escape between the hustle and bustle of Toronto and the peaceful tranquillity of cottage country in Muskoka. Residents and visitors to this region can enjoy the best of both worlds without having to leave the city.

This week, we are putting the spotlight on south-central Barrie. Here are the features, highlights, and stories of the Painswick neighbourhood.


Location: South-Central Barrie, just west of the Tollendal neighbourhood

Communities: Mapleview Heights

Outdoor Amenities: Lover’s Creek Ravine, Painswick Park, and Golden Meadow Park

Local Schools: Mapleview Heights Elementary School, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Elementary School, and Willow Landing Elementary School

Highlights & History: Painswick offers residents of Barrie’s south end as well as residents of Innisfil an abundance of shopping, dining, and services in the Younge Street and Big Bay Point Road area. The Barrie South GO Train Station at Yonge Street and Mapleview Drive provides an easy commute to the city. Featuring a mix of older century homes and newer, more modern subdivisions, this area is a desirable location and transitional area for those moving into Barrie.

From endless city amenities to the Kempenfelt Bay shoreline to quiet family parks dotted throughout the region, Barrie offers something for everyone. If you are looking to move to Barrie, the communities and neighbourhoods within its city limits give definition to the lifestyle you are seeking.

Pest Control Barrie, ONT

The mild, rainy ocean climate has long been the envy of Canadians looking to escape the cold of more eastern provinces. But the conditions that make Kelowna appealing to humans are exactly the same that make it an ideal home for pests who wouldn’t be able to survive the cold dry winters further east.

The dense vegetation that covers much of Barrie is home to a wealth of wildlife and associated pests that thrive in the temperate climate. As Canada’s primary gateway to Pacific trade, Barrie’s harbours also offer some unique challenges for pest control and require continuous monitoring and prevention to ensure that infestations don’t take hold.

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as a pest problem. They can become a huge issue, whether you’re a homeowner or a business manager. That’s why Natural Pest Solutions offers pest control services in Barrie and the surrounding areas. If you find unwanted rodents, insects, or other wildlife on your property, give us a call. We offer flexible hours so you can call us any time of day, any day of the week.
