On the south west end of Greater Napanee lies the Glenora Ferry, which is a short 15 minute ferry ride to Prince Edward County, a community world renowned for its rich soil and the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park, it’s beautiful countryside and dozens of wineries and orchards. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and the Ontario Power Generation – Lennox Generating Station are a couple of the area’s largest employers, and provides the catalyst for the growing manufacturing, commercial and resident base.
