A rural section of Springwater Township, Elmvale is home to just 2,400 people give or take. Prior to the opening
of the first local post office in 1859, it had been known as Four Corners, Elm Flats, and Saurin. To the locals,
Emvale is a place far larger in spirit and excitement than any numbers would indicate. The Elmvale Maple Syrup
Festival is a major tourism draw, bringing thousands of visitors to the community each year since it first
launched in 1966. Elmvale also puts on its Fall fair every October.
One of Elmvale's hidden gem is it's impressive Jungle Zoo which is composed of more than 300 exotic animals.
Elmvale is central to one of the world's most pristine aquifers & this is considered by many to be among the finest, purest, cleanest natural spring water worldwide. The people in this area truly understand how lucky they are & are trying hard to protect it. On top of that, the Elmvale Water Festival is an initative meant to raise awareness of water-quality issues.
Truly a combination of the quiet of a rural locale and the vigour of a community intent on making a name for itself, Elmvale is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking to have fun and to get some rest in bursts throughout the year.
