The Parry Sound Downtown Business Association currently supports over 300 businesses. The DBA is proud to be on the shores of Georgian Bay and has been a GBBR Charter Member since 2012. Downtown Parry Sound strives to be a safe and pleasant destination for the community to work, live, and shop. All can enjoy the unique atmosphere and take in the arts, entertainment, restaurants, great parks, waterfront and historical sites plus shop in a variety of unique stores.

The DBA is working hard to make the downtown clean and beautiful. Street planters are filled with beautiful annuals and there are several permanent gardens containing perennials. Many cigarette butt receptacles have been installed to help keep the sidewalks clean.  Bike racks encourage people to ride their bikes downtown. In the summer benches and bistro tables and chairs are set out to encourage people to sit and visit. Read more on the DBA and upcoming events.
