Highlights, Summer

Head to the Quarry!

Sun seekers head here.

Another rite of summer passage here is a trip to the Quarry – and we’ve got TWO, so you’ve got options!

The Elora Quarry is a two-acre former limestone quarry, renowned for its deep emerald green water and sandy beach, a picturesque oasis carved into the steep 12 metre hight limestone cliffs. It is one of the most popular destinations in town to enjoy a hot summer day. Book online for admission!

This day-use property is tree covered and suitable for picnicking as well as short walks along the one kilometre trail. The park offers vault toilets, change rooms and picnic tables. But please keep your dogs at home!

This place is famous.

An image of the Elora Quarry taken from the top of the limestone cliffs overlooking the quarry basin and the water that is turquoise in colour, with the view of the beach far in the distance. There are a few people on the beach. The image also shows several of the cliffs and rocks that lead down into the water. Thick trees surround the landscape.

It also happens to be a very famous location for movie crews. The Elora Quarry has been featured in many films, but you may recognize it from Stephen King’s horror film “IT.” (Don’t worry, we’ve checked all the grates. No clowns.)
