It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Albrough, a devoted, dedicated hard-working Board member of the Gloucester Pool Cottagers' Association. Ken spear-headed the implementation of the Apricot IT program to manage membership and communication.  He championed many environmental causes in our area. He planned and volunteered for many of our events with his wife, Francine.  The Alboroughs were very active in the Township of Georgian Bay.

Ken will be missed greatly.  A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring.


Gloucester Pool Cottagers' Association has been in existence since 1918 and currently has an active membership of 300+  families consisting of both seasonal and permanent residents, on Little Lake, Gloucester Pool, Baxter Lake and Maclean Lake. The GPCA is the voice of its members regarding political, social and environmental concerns. We support FOCA (Federation of Ontario Cottagers) and have an active Lake Steward program. We keep our members advised by issuing a quarterly newsletter, plus regular email updates.

Where is Gloucester Pool?

Gloucester Pool begins at Lock 45 in Port Severn and runs North East through Little Lake carrying on through Little Chute to the Big Chute Marine Railway.

The lake is 13 kilometers long and is home to at least 20 islands. Little Lake is separated from Gloucester Pool by a channel called the Narrows. The Pool is the last major body of water on the Trent Severn Waterway before Georgian Bay.


The association has a community hall in Burrows Bay for event use. It is water access only and has ample docking space.
