The Owen Sound Visitor Centre on the harbour can help with all your travel needs in Owen Sound and area and carries the greatest selection of Owen Sound swag around! We're located in a vintage railway station on the waterfront, home of the Community Waterfront Heritage Centre as well, with a tug, caboose and train on site. Our tourism and events ambassadors will assist you in planning your holiday by highlighting the area's key attractions. Find maps, guides, washrooms and free wifi, souvenirs and FREE bike rentals! The Visitor Centre is open seven days a week from the Victoria Day weekend in May to Thanksgiving. There's a boat launch, cafe, snack bar and picnic tables nearby, and it's a short walk to Kelso Beach Park.
