  • A focal point when visiting the waterfront. Its weird looking at first but fun for taking pictures by the water.  more »

  • Personally I don't like the look of the Spirit Catcher - it reminds me of an earwig. But the area down here by the water is nicely maintained. 2 points for uniqueness at least.
  • I've got it on good authority that this eyesore hasn't caught any Spirits since being installed in '87. Perfect example of government waste and bureaucracy gone amiss. Great place to shore fish though :)
  • The Spirit Catcher is beautiful and I love how it rises over Barrie's waterfront. No matter how many times I see it, I'm still struck by its beauty. The city has put in other sculptures, monuments and beautiful gardens along the lakefront, and I love walking the paths that wind around the water. Just a beautiful city.
  • Great night view of the city of Barrie Ontario surrounding Kempenfelt Bay.
  • The Spirit Catcher- the big sculpture is little on the hill. So view was great! And also a harbor was there. So can see many boats too. Parking lot fee is $1 a hour.
