Victoria Place is the hidden jewel of the Kawartha Lakes – a Waterfront Community of 215 home-owners who have relocated from all over Ontario. You will find neighbours from all walks of life and occupations who have decided to make Victoria Place their home. Victoria Place is a unique, adult lifestyle community. It is not a condominium. You own your home and property. The common areas and amenities are owned by the Victoria Place Association, a non-profit corporation. The Board of Directors administers to the affairs of the Association and the maintenance of the common areas and amenities. Membership in the Association entitles you to use of the common areas, amenities and waterfront park. Each home stands on approximately one half to three-quarters of an acre. Surrounding the groups of homes and, in some instances, separating lots are large areas of common land owned by the Victoria Place Association.
Victoria Place was the creation of Fred Reynolds, a young Bobcaygeon businessman who, while visiting Florida, saw his first self-contained community designed for seniors. He liked what he saw, but thought he could do better right in his own backyard. He came home, bought a large, marginal farm on the west shore of Pigeon Lake just south of Bobcaygeon and went to work. By 1979 he had completed Phase 1 of his two-phase dream community and had sold nearly all the lots in the original plan. All homes were originally sold to buyers over 55, most of who were retired or in the process of retiring.
