Canterbury Common has it all: location, style and a sense of being at home. The welcome smiles and waves of the residents provide a first glimpse of the caring and supportive attitude that prevails throughout the community. The scenic views of the lake, the surrounding wildlife and the surrounding green space provide many of the houses with stunning views. The lakefront Community Centre, the kilometre-long nature trail along the shoreline of Lake Scugog and a permanently protected forest preserve are only a few of the amenities Canterbury Common has to offer. All of this is located within a short distance of the main street shops of Port Perry as well as numerous restaurants.
