Ontario Hospital Curling Club Penetanguishene patchSurrounding Community

The grounds of the Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care are situated on a peninsula in Georgian Bay at the mouth to Penetang Harbour - but despite the seemingly isolated location, the hospital has held close relationships with the surrounding communities throughout its history.

This exhibit looks at some of the ways patients and staff of Oak Ridge interacted with neighbouring communities, as well as the nearby Central North Correctional Centre. It likewise presents the important role that community volunteers played in the day-to-day experience of the Oak Ridge division.
