SELKIRK—The quaint town of Selkirk, located on the shoreline of Lake Erie, is an ideal destination for those seeking a family-friendly getaway. Settled in the late 1700s, every August Selkirk Gas Fest celebrates the town’s natural gas heritage with live music, children’s activities, phenomenal food, and no shortage of community spirit.
For outdoor enthusiasts, Selkirk Provincial Park is a sensational spot to pitch a tent, enjoy a picnic, stroll along Wheelers Walk Trail, or cast out a line for some renowned sport fishing. History buffs and seekers of knowledge will have their thirst for thought quenched at local heritage attractions: Wilson MacDonald Memorial School Museum, an 1872 Red brick School Museum; the Canadian Drilling Rig Museum, a source of natural gas history; and Cottonwood Mansion, a 19th century brick mansion that is open for tours.
