A Little History
Harmony Woods Recreation Club is a non-profit corporation owned and operated by members of The Barbershop Harmony Society, Sweet Adelines International, Harmony Incorporated and The Harmony Woods Singing Club. It is dedicated to providing recreation, enjoyment and fellowship to its members, families and guests.
From its inception in 1988, Harmony Woods has grown to include members and their families from Ontario and Michigan. We have had Barbershoppers visit from as far away as California. Over the years many projects and improvements have made our park better and better. In 1998 we constructed our 40ft by 60 ft pavilion to provide a sheltered area for special functions. Frequent barbershop quartet contests, variety shows, singing clinics and large group dinners have utilized this facility.
The park is available for affiliated barbershop chapter functions and picnics and has hosted many of these over the years. Each holiday weekend during the summer a section of the park is responsible for organizing special functions. We’ve had everything from Christmas in July to Labour Day Parades to Oktoberfest to our own style of Olympics. The only things that stay consistent are the fun and harmony.
Would you like to be part of Harmony Woods Recreation Club and participate in the enjoyment and operation of this little bit of heaven we call Harmony Woods?

The Harmony Woods Chorus
The Harmony Woods Chorus is a twenty-five plus choral group of male and female members of The Woods. They meet each Saturday in June, July and August between 10AM and 11AM and sing traditional four part barbershop harmony.
This chorus is open to whomever is in the park at the time, and guests are always welcome. The chorus is available for public performances in the local area and have performed at many such events over the years.
