Ontario Parks

Donate Today!

Provincial parks are part of the fabric of Ontario - our history, culture, and natural environment. They help to preserve our natural landscapes for future generations.

Only a small portion of Ontario Parks’ budget comes from provincial taxes. Most operational funding comes from day-use and camping fees, rentals, partnerships and donations.

Ontario’s provincial parks are treasured places to build new memories, carry on traditions, connect with family, care about the environment or simply “get away”.
