The park is a lovely place for an evening walk/exercise, Family get togethers, sports activities etc. The view of the lake is very beautiful and would highly recommend for family with children to walk around the park! There are parking lots available at the entrance, and a playground nearby for children as well.

Lake Ontario Park has undergone many changes over the years, it used to have an area where my Mother and her friends attended dances. When I was a child it was a beach and area filled with rides. After its last face lift, its now got a great splash pad, lovely grounds for walking, areas for a quiet picnic or... More

WOW what a change to this beautiful park. More parking spaces, large beautiful paths, play structure for kids, are where you can have a group event under a roof in case of rain,etc. There is even a boat launch. Washroom are right there also, you do not have to walk a mile away to get to them. I must say... More

I have visited this park many times, over the years. It used to offer car camping, and even included a small fairground! It has recently been "improved", which means that vastly more space for parking has been created, and large swathes of asphalt paths have been created. Admittedly, this makes much of the park much more accessible for folks pushing... More

Nothing really special about this tract of waterfront, except that it is open, uncluttered with buildings and other structures and provides direct access to Lake Ontario and a wide view of the Lake as well as the large park fronting the most impressive courthouse in the opposite direction.

When you approach the park it has been torn up for some time, it used to be a wonderful camping location etc. But don't let the mess fool you but it is worth the walk to the water and catch a walking trail that takes you around the edge of the lake towards the City! A location best walked with... More

Lake Ontario Park used to be a major community centre in Kingston. There was a public band-stand where the longhouse now is, well kept paths and gardens, manned beaches, and even a beautiful and huge gazebo down by the water. This was decades ago when the park was actually a big part of Kingston. I mean like the 40's, 50's,... More

This is one of Kingston's oldest playgrounds. I used to visit here regularly as a teen, and lifeguard on the man-made beach as a young adult. Many of the amusements have been removed, but some are still in operation, I think. The shore walk meanders through the old psychiatric hospital grounds all the way to historic Portsmouth (Kingston). I don't... More
