Stouffville, ON is a serene community with a lot of green spaces and heavily forested areas filled with small rivers and lakes. These coupled up with the local parks make this urban community a great recreational destination for many people. These features are also attracting many people to the area in search of permanent residency away from the rather overpopulated cities that surround Stouffville ON.
