Discover the History

Long before Bobby Orr scored his iconic winning goal for the Stanley Cup, he was skating along the Seguin River in his hometown, Parry Sound.

Trace the steps of one of Canada’s most-loved hockey players at the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame and see how he became one of the greatest defencemen in the history of the game.

Located opposite where Orr grew up skating, the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame is nestled within the famous Stockey Centre (home to the Festival of Sound) in Parry Sound.

For rainy days in cottage country, test your skills with virtual hockey games or try announcing an NHL match at the play-by-play booth inside the two-floor exhibit. Kids and adults alike will love reliving classic plays, seeing the jerseys and trophies all in one place.    

Stay in Parry Sound for longer than an afternoon, to discover the world’s largest freshwater archipelago, the UNSECO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. Rent a kayak or a boat to explore the 30,000 islands. Everywhere you’ll feel the wind and water of the rugged landscapes that inspired the Group of 7. You can also enjoy the views in comfort on a freshwater cruise.

Experience live music in the world-renowned acoustics of the Stockey Centre during the Festival of the Sound.  Or enjoy the evening breeze from the Bay, at the Bands on the Bay open-air concert series.
