Fancy spending time enjoying a HUGE play area in an 150 year old barn? The Play Barn at Bronte Creek Provincial Park is perfect for kids who want to jump, climb, play, and have fun!

Below, there are stalls where the animals are waiting, and you might be able to watch staff breed, fee and clean all around them! Kids over 10 years will love exploring this unusual play area!

Love to fish? Just grab a license and get ready to cast, or if you are feeling adventurous just grab those walking shoes and take to the many trails! On the day use area of the park, there are 4 nature trails, as well as MANY connecting footpaths where you can explore - there is even a campground if you want to extend that family day out to longer!

So why not explore Bronte Creek Provincial Park, that is SO much more than a park, and it's where you can really enjoy nature, and enjoy that fresh air!

    Its a very basic campground, on the setting of a river valley, which is rapidly being surrounded by urban sprawl. Its not a true escape into the wilderness, you won't even get a good view of the stars due to the light effect from the city.

    What you will get, is a well tendered campground with large sites that are mostly private; you'll get some decent walking trails of basic/beginner quality; and you'll get a very quick escape from the city.

    I camped with my family and friend's family over there for the week end. Our plan was to visit Toronto on Saturday and the African Lion Safari on Sunday and then drive back to Michigan. The sites are very private but not much trees. We had to drive every time we wanted to use the bathroom. If it was not the location between Toronto and Hamilton, I wouldnot have camped there.

    Lots to do in the park. Great value when you purchase ana annual pass like we have for the last 35 years. Wish they would stop harrassing people with dogs off leash deep in the bush, early in the morning...and start charging fue litterbugs instead.

Good for families looking for a quick night or two away from home, especially with young kids. Good for people driving through southern ontario, and looking for a quick stop. And good for people just wanting to get away from the city, slow down, and enjoy a relaxing few days in a wilderness setting.

PS You'll hear coyotes and owls, and you'll see deer and eagles along with lots of smaller wild life.
