People love summer in Thornbury/Clarksburg.

But, if you’d rather spend your summer away from the water, there’s plenty for you to do; our roads are very popular with cyclists because of the rolling hills and beautiful surroundings, we also have two private golf courses and a public one, plus lots of parks and trails to explore.

In the winter, the snow doesn’t stop these communities from thriving. The Thornbury Arena is constantly busy with hockey games and public skates and the streets of Clarksburg are cozy and quaint under the falling snow.  Local events like Old Fashioned Christmas and The Clarksburg Tree Lighting help kick off winter and Christmas and the Annual Valentine’s Day Tea held by the Thornbury Girl Guides wraps up the winter season.  Thornbury/Clarksburg are just minutes away from various ski hills, snowshoe and cross-country ski trails, so there’s always something to do in the winter.
