Ontario Parks beaches are prime summer destinations, particularly on weekends with beautiful weather. Check out our beach basics blog for information on keeping our parks/beaches safe and protected, as well as tips on good beach etiquette.
Bring your bathing suit! Many parks have amazing beaches with clean freshwater. Bring a lifejacket or personal flotation device (PFD) for children and non-swimmers. At any of the participating parks, campers can borrow a PFD, FREE of charge.
Biking is permitted on most roadways. Some parks have designated bike lanes and trails. Wear a helmet and do not ride after dark without a bike light. Make sure you obey all signage.
Bring your soccer ball, baseball, kite, or other sports equipment and use the open recreation areas found in many parks.
Wildlife viewing is best done around early morning or dusk. Binoculars are helpful for spotting animals. Check with the Visitor Centre for wildlife checklists and recent sightings.
