Lots to do at Ontario Place this summer

The greatest vacation spots are not always at faraway destinations. With Ontario150 celebrations underway, there are plenty of options right here in our province, including Ontario Place!

In June, Ontario Place revealed the new Trillium Park & William G. Davis Trail on the waterfront along its east island. The unique green space evokes Ontario’s natural landscapes and offers stunning views of Lake Ontario and the cityscape of Toronto.

Here are few ways you can enjoy summer at Ontario Place:

·         Heritage Ontario: The free admission festival this Canada Day long weekend will celebrate the diverse heritage, culture and traditions of Ontario through music, food, entertainments and interactive exhibits.

·         Ride along the waterfront: If you are riding your bike along the Martin Goodman Trail this summer, take a break through Ontario Place and discover the new Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail. See if you can find the Marker Trees that lead to the lake.

·         Bring a picnic, enjoy the views: Ontario Place welcomes guests to visit the park outside of festival hours. Bring a picnic, find a spot in Trillium Park and enjoy the waterfront. Dogs are welcome!

·         Date night sunsets: With sweeping views of the city and Lake Ontario, the Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail offers multiple vantage points for picture-perfect sunsets – an ideal way to cap off a great date night.
