Drayton is a charming rural community in Mapleton Township that embodies a true sense of community pride. With deep agricultural roots and a tradition of neighbours helping neighbours, the landscape that surrounds this small town has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the County of Wellington.
Convenience and access to modern community resources and facilities make Drayton an ideal location to call home. Active in sports, with the PMD Arena Complex near the core of the historic downtown, the community boasts several outdoor sports fields for soccer and baseball, such as Riverside Park Soccer Pitch and the Drayton Agricultural Fair Grounds. And for the younger crowd, Centennial Park and the Kinsmen Playground offer a place for fun and adventure.
The Conestogo River meanders through the town, leading to nearby Conestogo Lake. It’s just a short drive to the beach there and Wellington County’s own cottage country experience. Perfect for boating, fishing and swimming it has all the beauty of a lake in the north, without the traffic.
Drayton brings the world of live theatre to the local stage at home with the Drayton Festival Theatre, one of the best small theatres in Southern Ontario. Owned by Drayton Entertainment, a professional theatre company, the Festival Theatre is one of seven unique venues across the province that showcases everything from Broadway musicals, to comedies and dramas.
Close to major urban centres like Kitchener–Waterloo, and the amenities of towns like nearby Fergus, Elora, Alma, Arthur and Elmira, Drayton is a popular town to visit and a wonderful place to live.
