Due to the recent close calls in Malahide, and not so close calls in area municipalities along with the dry conditions and prospects of rain at a minimum, Malahide is placing a burn ban into effect until environmental conditions change. Environment Canada has also issued an extreme air quality warning in Elgin for the next couple of days that can only be exacerbated by unnecessary burning.
Malahide Township is a prosperous community of more than 8,800 residents locatedwithin Elgin County. Our rich history is preserved throughout our township within all of our communities.
Take a journey through Malahide and take a step back in time as you may see our local Amish community on a horse and buggy along the country road side. Visit one of the many quaint restaurants within the community that will surely be satisfying.
Next take a stop at one the roadside markets for fresh Malahide produce. Drive past the former R.C.A.F training base, now the home of the Ontario Police College which also has an extremely popular migratory bird viewing area managed by the Ministry of Natural Resources.
Stop in for a day of fun and programs at one of our new community facilities, Malahide Community Place located in Springfield and South Dorchester Community Hall in Lyons, or rent one of the facilities for a family event, seminar, banquet and more!
Enjoy a local winery, art gallery, or shop for an afternoon of delight. End your day spent in Malahide along the shores of Lake Erie in Port Bruce relaxing on the beach or try your luck at fishing off the pier. While enjoying the warm summer breeze and the sun setting over blue waters dine at one of many restaurants located along the beach.
From picturesque horizons on the waterfront of Port Bruce’s beach to the colourful fields of rolling farmland, Malahide offers a bountiful array of scenery and activity, creating memories that last a lifetime.
