The woods beautifully blends nature with urban
Pefferlaw is a neighborhood within the Town of Georgina, located 3 kilometres south of the southeastern shores of Lake Simcoe and in the eastern end of the town. A river, known officially as the Pefferlaw River, runs just south of the town's commercial district. The Canadian National railway cuts through Pefferlaw and, until the early 1990s, served a train station in the community's commercial district. This railway links Toronto with Orillia, as well as Northern Ontario with Via Rail transcontinental lines heading to Vancouver.
The town is largely focused on the Pefferlaw Dam, blocking the Pefferlaw River. The commercial district lies just north of the dam, and faces a supermarket, hotel, youth centre, automobile service station, Canada Post office, medical centre with pharmacy, Liquor Control Board of Ontario retail store, and a branch of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. The town features several public facilities operated by the Town of Georgina, including a public library completed in 1989, community centre, fire station, and a large multi-use park. Pefferlaw is mostly situated in a forest setting. Farmlands are to the west, the northwest and the north. More backwoods are east of Lake Ridge Road and Pefferlaw. The forests are almost connected with the forests south of Sutton. The forests overlay most of the area around Pefferlaw and to the south with a few farmlands as well as within the shoreline of Lake Simcoe. The woods are mainly composed of pine and other varieties of trees and the size is about 600 to 700 square kilometres and about 80% of the area around Pefferlaw.
