Killbear Provincial Park
The area around Parry Sound is very beautiful though, and especialy Killbear Provincial Park. Killbear is a 30 minute drive northwest of Parry Sound on Highway 559.
It's a wonderful place to hike or go to the beach. You can read much more about this Provincial Park on my Killbear page :

Let me start in these tips with a picture of the fire department in Parry Sound. Hahaha, actually that is all that I have of Parry Sound itself! It is not a spectacular little town,you, so that is why I only have this photo of it. I kind of liked these old firetrucks :-)
The Old Fire Hall was constructed in 1893. The original bell called the volunteer firefighters for 73 years and sounded the nine o'clock curfew until WW II. The historical landmark has been refurbished and is open to the public during the summer months. It is located at Market Square, downtown Parry Sound.
Parry sound is a good place to get all your shopping, and is also a starting point for a cruise throught the 30,000 island regions. Or maybe more original, take a scenic air tour. Hahaha, that is what I did, and it was great fun! You can see those pics on the 'off the beaten path' tips.
