Quinte West (Trenton, Sidney, Murray)

Trenton is at the heart of the amalgamated city of Quinte West, which includes the townships of Sidney and Murray, and the Village of Frankford. Located along the beautiful Bay of Quinte, Quinte West is the southern gateway to the well-known Trent-Severn Waterway and it is the ideal spot for the angler, boater or vacationer who just wants to get away from it all.

Head to the marina area and watch boats embark on their journey up the Trent-Severn Waterway. You can get a great seat at the Fraser Park Marina, which is also one of the stops along Trenton's stretch of the Waterfront Trail, a beautiful walking/cycling trail that joins Trenton with Hamilton along Lake Ontario.

If fishing is your idea of relaxing, then drop a line in one of the hottest fishing spots in Ontario. Each May Trenton hosts Walleye World Fishing Weekend, a live release fishing competition.


Belleville, on the Bay of Quinte, was settled by United Empire Loyalists in 1784 and became a city in 1878. Known as the "friendly city", Belleville offers big city amenities along with small town friendliness, and a pleasing mixture of the historic and modern.

Belleville is home to an excellent yacht harbour, which is a picturesque stopping point for Great Lakes sailors and a favourite launch for sportsfishing enthusiasts after Walleye, Pike and Bass. In the winter, Belleville becomes a major ice fishing centre.

Each July thousands of visitors enjoy the Waterfront & Ethnic Festival, while beautiful music chimes year round from the City Hall clock tower, overlooking the new civic square and Farmers Market. Residents and visitors alike enjoy
