Verona, population about 2500, lies about 25 km north of Kingston, midway between the city and the major cottage country corridor served by Highway 7. It ‘s at the southern edge of the Canadian Shield, where the friendly mix of farmland, rocky-shored lakes, and mixed woodland make an ideal environment for relaxed living.
The village is served by a major grocery chain and several stores and restaurants and churches. Residents are close enough to Kingston to enjoy its cosmopolitan array of shopping and entertainment venues. Its elementary school serves about 300 students from junior kindergarten through grade eight. It boasts a public beach, 18 hole golf course, hockey arena and an abundance of access to the many lakes and streams which surround the village. You can be busy year round hiking, biking, cross country skiing, hunting, boating and fishing.
Verona’s medical clinic, one of a five-practice group called the Rural Kingston Primary Care Network, currently serves 2500 patients. Most of its medical staff hold adjunct appointments at Queen’s University, and it is affiliated with all Kingston and regional hospitals. In addition to its regular staff, the clinic has onsite clinics in CPOD, diabetic nutritional counseling, geriatric social work, psychiatry and healthy family relationships.
Verona is full of activity. Its community association sponsors the three day Verona Festival and many village booster projects. The Verona Lions’ annual Jamboree has been a 50 year favourite of midway and carnival fun.
If you are looking for the friendly and relaxed life of a small town within 40 minutes of the rich research and entertainment resources of a city, you can do no better than Verona.
