From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Smith–Ennismore–Lakefield is a township in central-eastern Ontario, Canada, in the County of Peterborough.


The township comprises the communities of Bridgenorth, Chemong Heights, Chemong Park, Connaught Shore, Deer Bay, Emerald Isle, Ennismore, Fife's Bay, Flood's Landing, Fowlers Corners, Gannon Beach, Gannon Village, Kawartha Park, Kimberley Park, Lakefield, Selwyn, Selwyn Shores, Stewart Heights, Tera View Heights, Tindle Bay, Victoria Springs, Village Meadowa, Windward Sands, Woodland Acres, Young's Cove, Young's Point and Youngstown.

The region is mostly rural, home to small villages and hamlets. Farms have been established on most of the flat areas that are intermixed between the rolling hills and lakes. The Trent-Severn Waterway passes through the township.


The township was created in its current form on January 1, 2001, by amalgamating the formerly independent village of Lakefield with the township of Smith-Ennismore and part of the township of Douro–Dummer.


The region is in the heart of Ontario's eastern 'Cottage Country', where urban residents (mostly from the Toronto region) have cottages on many of the small lakes. Many of the retail and services offered in the region cater to this seasonal market.

Small scale farms are a large industry, dairy and meat production are some of the notable goods.
