Large and spacious!

I came here for a picnic with friends and was able to find a nice grassy spot by a picnic table, despite it being summer with many other people there. It's super big! There's a... read more

A great deal of money was invested in this area recently. A kids' splash pad was added and parking areas improved. A building was added with restrooms and provision for small events. There are very few. The city also renovated a boat launch area, but it's on such a steep grade that only a brave boater would use it. Inexplicably,... More

Lake ontario is my toddler's favorite spot for playground and splash pad fun. It's a nice backdrop with the water, but sometimes the bugs can be bad.

I came here for a picnic with friends and was able to find a nice grassy spot by a picnic table, despite it being summer with many other people there. It's super big! There's a water fountain area, a lot of picnic tables, a tall gazebo area, and I think an activity area.

A great playground with lots of shade and picnic tables and bbq pits if you want to cook. Lots of walkways and grass areas, we had... More

Brought 9 year old twin grand daughters. They loved the waterfront, climbing on the rocks and the ducks. The play structures were really great too. With the water pad it would be wonderful on a hot day.

This park has been gentrified from the early days of amusement park, camp grounds etc. A lot of the character has been lost but there is a concrete splash pad. Great paved path east and west along the waterfront.

Lake Ontario Park used to be a hidden gem, but since it's been revitalized it's become a popular place. It is beautiful and the views are gorgeous - just be prepared for sharing it with a lot of other people.

Spent a lot of time at this park last summer enjoying the amenities ...water park and play area for children, clean washroom facilities and several areas in which to picnic. Stroll along the waterside and enjoy the ambiance.

A wonderful retreat on Ontario Lake. Pristine and romantic, a great day to spend boating between the US and Canada.
