This is a vibrant community filled with professionals, students, artists, actors, entrepreneurs and families.  

There is literally something for everyone - the sports enthusiast, the artist, the Shakespeare aficionado, the book worm, the music lover, the coffee drinker, the foodie, the naturalist, the photographer, the wild life lover, the gardener, the beer connoisseur, the sommelier, the farmer, the historian, the fashionista, the early riser or the night owl.

You will come to understand why we have chosen to lay down our roots in this amazing town.

NEW: Finding a parking spot in downtown Stratford may have just got easier.

In a press release, the city says it’s moving forward with the next phase of its Smart Parking pilot project with the release of a real-time online map that shows the availability of municipal parking spaces in the downtown core. These are all paid day time parking spots.

Last fall, the city says parking sensors were embedded in the asphalt at 78 downtown parking spaces, along Wellington, Downie and Albert Streets.

The sensors transmit signals through a wireless network to indicate whether a vehicle is parked in the spot or not.
