  •  Interesting Features
    Molson Park (now Park Place) – home of large scale concerts such as Lollapalooza and Edgefest. Tens of thousands of fans crammed in 80 hectares. Stage is interesting.
    The 'Rock'n'Roll' Motel where rooms were provided for the Rock Stars are interesting.
    Dozens of small to medium-sized buildings to explore. The original farm house and barn are still on site which are visible from the highway.

     History
    In the mid 1970's, Molson's Brewery purchased the Formosa Spring Brewery of Barrie. Soon, Moslon constucted a park adjacent to the south of the brewery and placed Central Ontario's first and only drive-through beer store on the corner of the park bordering Molson Park Drive and Hwy. 400.

    Molson Park was witness to many great concert tours.
    In October 1999, Molson announced its intention to close the Barrie, Ontario brewery.

     Future Plans
    Redevelopment.
    North American is hoping to redevelop the property to a 'business retail village' and 'lifestyle centre' of sorts featuring many up-scale retail shops, restaurants, hotels, entertainment outlets, and industrial/manufacturing buildings.
    Currently the war is still being waged between the City of Barrie, Park Place (North American), and the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB).
