Ontario Place is unquestionably one of our favourite destinations in Toronto, especially for summer events. Ontario Place is a waterfront entertainment venue where you’ll never run out of things to do. The venue hosts a variety of live music events, water activities, drive-in movies, and is one of the best places to see the city skylines and sunsets.
Things to Do
Ontario Place is the best option if you are looking for something more exciting and get away from the city without travelling far.
You could spend a nice day walking on the amazing trails or have a peaceful morning jogging along the water. You could also visit at night for the best city night views and rent out fire pits with your friends either on Trillium Park, Lakeside, North or South Cedar Cove.
One of our favourite things to do at this place is drive-in movies on the East Island with friends. You can buy tickets online in advance for $20 for 2 people in one car or 4 people for $40. For more information and updates visit their website.
Ontario Place also has one of the best sunset viewing spots in Toronto. You can find a trail on the west side of the area where you can see the perfect crimson sunsets reflecting on the water.
You can also try skating, rollerblading, have picnics, and even beach volleyball. And let’s not forget kayaking at Lake Ontario, which is a nice way to explore the surrounding area and for a breath of fresh air.
Ontario Place is also home to different wildlife such as swan, Canadian goose and many other bird species that you can spot. You can even go fishing on the shorelines in the designated areas.
We all know parking in downtown Toronto is hard. Ontario Place offers a paid parking spot of $6.50 for an hour and a $10 flat rate maximum until 11:59 pm. The parking is available on Lot P1 from Monday to Thursday and P2 Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 11 am -9 pm.
Don’t miss out on the jet ski, segway tours, as well as live music festivals that run until September 6, during Thursdays and Sundays. Many Canadian artists will be performing to bring the summer to life after the long lockdown. The park is open from 6 am until 11 pm so make sure you make this summer count.
