Paris is a beautiful, peaceful town, nestled in the heart of southwestern Ontario. It’s (also) been called “the prettiest town in Canada” for good reason. Paris is located partially on a steep hill that makes for some great vistas of the Grand River green space, which winds through the center of town. Historic buildings, small shops, charming restaurants, cobblestone walkways and copious trails make this charming for both residents and visitors.
Paris is an excellent place to settle. Mary is one senior who moved here from out of town; she loves the way the town puts on its best for the summer. As she says, “the landscaping here is really quite beautiful.”
Retiring and living Paris
Paris is full of century homes suitably close to the river, and there are new subdivisions under development constantly, along with the edge of town. For those looking for something nearby and a little different, there are excellent adult lifestyle communities not far outside of Paris. Paris’s retirement homes offer world-class care and living, in a small town setting, where fees are more affordable than in some larger cities in the province.
