Community Testimonials


We stayed in Espanola rather than moving back to Muskoka because the small town feel and welcoming community quickly made it feel like home. We have taken advantage of the many activities in Espanola and have joined multiple teams and made great friends over the past year. We are excited to start a family here and look forward to what our future in Espanola has to offer.
