Things to do in Barrie

    Spirit Catcher, Barrie Spirit Catcher Barrie, Ontario, Canada
    The Spirit Catcher is a glorious sculpture created by sculptor, Ron Baird, for the Expo 86 that had been held in Vancouver, British Columbia, that now is sitting on the shores of the Kempenfelt Bay, in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Nine sculptors had been contacted to submit ideas for the expo, and only two would be picked to be commissioned for the project. This sculpture would take some six months to complete using COR-TEN steel, that is a non-corrosive alloy that keeps its structual integrity, and originally installed at the Expo exhibition grounds in Vancouver. Once the expo was finished, the sculpture would be bought by the Helen McCrea Peacock Foundation in Toronto, for $230,000 in Canadian dollars, who then donated the magnificent sculpture to the Barrie Gallery Project as a beautiful inspiration for the creation of an art gallery in the city. This fabulous sculpture weighs twenty tons, is 70 wide by 65 feet tall, and had to be brought to the region by two flatbed trucks. It would be installed by volunteers and two cranes, taking two full days in the weekend of June 12 and 13, 1987; and dedicated on September 12, 1987. This unique piece has 16 kinetic quills, that rock back and forth when the wind blows around it, and some months after its installation, fears about the high winds coming off the lake caused some concern that the quills might be blown off. They were then redesigned by Baird and helped by Mike Davies, who was the recently retired vice-president of the advanced engineering program at de Havilland aircraft. This unique sculpture has become a great focal point in the Barrie waterfront, where it has become an excellent meeting place and navigational aid to travelers and the community. This installation would begin the drive to put various pieces of art around the city that is still continuing to this day. The sculpture is one of the most iconic landmarks in this city and was inspired by the west coast location and the Thunderbird of the First Nations mythology; as a messenger that carries our dreams and desires to the Creator.

F. Worthington Memorial Park and at various points around the base. It is about 80 miles north of Toronto, where the museum combines all the museums into one at the base that had been established in the 1990s.

    Simcoe County MuseumSimcoe County Museum Barrie, Ontario, Canada
    This museum was created in 1928 by the Women's Institute members, Mrs. C. P. Stocking and Mrs. R. A. Sutherland, with the first exhibit held in the Barrie Public Library and then in the Barrie Registry Office. The county would take the responsibility of the museum and its functions in the 1950s, with the first wing of the museum opening at Hwy. 26, and the present locale in 1962. During the ensuing years the museum has grown in size and statue, so that today, it houses a five gallery facility that contains sixteen outdoor heritage and exhibit structures. The collection include heritage buildings, orientation gallery, farm and construction equipment, Ross Channen Gallery, education wing, Barrie's Main Street and the Victorian wing; as well as numerous outstanding educational programs. The orientation gallery is the best place to start off your tour, to gain a better understanding of the county, that was inspired by historian Andrew Hunter's 1909 book, A History of Simcoe County, where you can wander through the display and learn more about the region's development, its settlement, industry, the development of the museum and the political scene. The Ross Channen gallery was named after the museum's first curator, and the early inhabitants of the county, with a magnificent copy of a Wendat (Huron) longhouse that was created specifically for visitor's to explore and enjoy. The gallery housing Barrie's Main Street takes visitors back to the early start of the 20th century, and the businesses that were in operation during the period of 1890 to 1910, with quite a few businesses like George Monkman's Apothecary, Simmons Hat and Fur and H. H. Otton's Hardware. Their Victorian gallery showcases the end of the 1800s, when growth and prosperity seemed to explode for many in the city, and this gallery highlights many of the aspects of that period including dioramas of a 1890s parlor, kitchen and dining room, along with numerous exhibits of textiles, taxidermy and hair wreaths that showcase a few of the hobbies people had back then. It is a fabulous place to visit and explore, where you can learn more about this city during its heyday and the lifestyles of the many people living here back then.

    Bear Creek Wildlife SanctuaryBear Creek Wildlife Sanctuary Barrie, Ontario, Canada
    The Bear Creek Exotic Wildlife Sanctuary is located about five miles west of Barrie, Ontario, Canada, and is a volunteer driven nonprofit that is dedicated to the survival of rare and endangered species, involved in the humane wildlife rescue and rehabilitation of the world's animals. It isn't open to the public, but you are able to obtain a private tour for you and your family. The sanctuary was started in 1989 by Werner Ebner, and today houses more than 100 animals that include the most beautiful and rare species of animals in the world. The sanctuary has become a safe haven for unwanted, injured and abused exotic and zoo surplus animals; believing in the axiom that we are responsible morally and ethically for these animals, which attributes to the constant and future survival of the rarer species that inhabit various areas of the world that are under continual attack by developments and encroaching growth. Sadly, but also fortunate, this sanctuary is the last resort for many of these magnificent animals, before they would be euthanized. The sanctuary is a marvelous adventure and learning center for the children of today that will become part of that future that realizes that if we all don't learn to live together, sharing our problems, and trials, we will not survive, and obviously, neither will they. Animals housed here include; jaguars, bears, birds, jaglions, tigers, primates, wolves, lions, lynx, cougars and foxes, as well as coyotes, rabbits, servals and raccoons. Some of the fascinating facts that can be learned here include; that 2010 was the year of the Tiger in Chinese astrology, and that the largest threat to these regal and majestic beasts is poaching for the Asian medicine market. And that in 1900 there had been an estimate made of the tiger population of about 100,000 animals, but today, a 110 years later, we only have 3200 left. And there are many more significant and enlightening facts that you can learn about this fantastic animal at the sanctuary.
