Lindsay is a community of 20,354 people on the Scugog River in the Kawartha Lakes region of south-eastern Ontario, Canada. Kids will appreciate attractions like Balsam Lake Provincial Park and Lindsay Golf and Country Club. Olde Gaol Museum and Horseless Carriage Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Lindsay side-trips: The Links at Monck's Landing Golf Club (in Norland), Bobcaygeon (Kawartha Settlers' Village & Bobcaygeon Farmers' Market) and Kirkfield (Kirkfield Lift Lock & Carden Plain). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Fenelon Falls Museum, walk around Victoria Park, identify plant and animal life at Ken Reid Conservation Area, and take an in-depth tour of The Kinmount Heritage Model Railroad & Museum.

The city of Kawartha Lakes is a unitary municipality in Central Ontario, Canada. It is a municipality legally structured as a single-tier city; however, Kawartha Lakes is the size of a typical Ontario county and is mostly rural. It is the second largest single-tier municipality in Ontario by land area.The main population centres are the communities of Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee and Woodville.HistoryThe city's name comes from the name of the Kawartha lakes. The term Kawartha is an anglicization of the word Ka-wa-tha (from Ka-wa-tae-gum-maug or Gaa-waategamaag, meaning), a word coined in 1895 by aboriginal Martha Whetung of the Curve Lake First Nations. The word meant "land of reflections" in the Anishinaabe language, according to Whetung. The word was later changed by tourism promoters to Kawartha, meaning "bright waters and happy lands."Prior to its restructuring as a city, the area was known as Victoria County. The city was created in 2001, during the ruling provincial Progressive Conservative party's "Common Sense Revolution". Through provincial legislation, the former Victoria County and its constituent municipalities were amalgamated into one entity named the City of Kawartha Lakes.
