About Yellow Point & Cedar

This small region dates back to the late 1800’s with its first post office opening in 1888. Today, it is home to local artists and artisans, shops and a good selection of dining at local cafes, restaurants and even an authentic British pub (the Crow & Gate Pub).

With plenty of outdoor activities to keep everyone in the family busy, it’s a great choice if you want a rural escape from city life, without giving up the city’s conveniences.

You can explore the artists and artisans shops and galleries, golf at Cottonwood Golf Course or take the kids to the 7 acre corn maze at McNabs Corn Maze and Produce Farm (seasonal). For the adventurous types, you can bungy jump, tackle a high ropes obstacle course or fly down the zip lines at Wildplay Elements Park.

There are lakes, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and Hemer Provincial Park with over 11 kilometres of walking trails, so there’s no excuse not to get out and be active.
