  Gravenhurst, Ontario - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gravenhurst (2001 population 10,899) is a town in the Muskoka Region of Ontario, Canada.
The Town of Gravenhurst includes a large area of the District of Muskoka, known to Ontarians as "cottage country." The town centre borders on two lakes: Lake Muskoka, which is the largest lake in the Region, and Gull Lake, a smaller cottage-bordered lake.
Gravenhurst also declares itself the "Gateway to the Muskoka Lakes" and has a large gate bearing this message hanging over Muskoka District Road 169, the main road leading into town from Highway 11.

The Gravenhurst economy slowly, subtlety, and uncontrollably merged into a south Muskoka economy, and that economy, initiated by Government decree, was centered in the Town of Bracebridge.
Gravenhurst would lose even more economic activity as a result, as we would be further swallowed up by development in Bracebridge.
Gravenhurst has by far the most to lose as a result of this restructuring, although my comments I think could very easily apply to some of the other communities in Muskoka as well, who are about to lose even more identity and control over their own economic destinies.
