Living in Point Edward
“The Point”, as the village is affectionately called by locals, was established in 1878 as a separate and distinct municipality in the County of Lambton. It is situated along the shores of the St Clair River where the azure blue waters of Lake Huron ends its downstream flow through the Great Lakes System.
The Village boasts natural and man made beauty within its boundaries. Parks, trails and walkways dot the urban landscape of this beautiful community. Many active and passive recreational sports including golfing and fishing can be enjoyed within the community’s boundaries. We are especially proud of our manicured Waterfront Park that draws visitors and residents who watch the lakers and pleasure craft sail by. While you are there, make sure you try the famous french fries under the Bridge.
The twin Blue Water Bridges span the St Clair River between Point Edward and Port Huron. This international entry point between the United States and Canada provides vital trade and transportation links for our two countries and is the second busiest border crossing in North America.
Since the Second World War, Point Edward has enjoyed a healthy mix of residential and industrial development. In the 1980’s, industrial development began to decline. With the new Charity Casino which opened in April, 2000, emphasis is turning to Tourism/Commercial development for continued prosperity.
