Nature / Park
Lake Ontario Park is a municipal park located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on the east side of Cataraqui Bay on the shore of Lake Ontario.The park, which dates from 1894, is a day-use facility with picnic areas, picnic pavilion, walkways, and children's playgrounds. The city acquired the park from the street railway company in 1930, the last year of streetcar service in Kingston.Its once popular campground closed in 2005 and the park's many amusement rides and refreshment booths have been removed. In 2006 the City of Kingston completed an exercise to obtain public feedback on the park's future.The park was refurbished and officially reopened on June 23, 2013 with washrooms, a play structure, walking paths to the shoreline, a beach volleyball court and a natural skating rink for the winter.

  • Awesome place to take the family. Spash pad park and a beautiful waterfront trial if you're in the mood for a relaxing walk filled with beautiful lake scenery. The new hospital has a cafe that is open to the public and makes for a great stop for a quick bite.
  • Huge park! Recently went to the Victoria Day fireworks and it was an amazing event. Capable of hosting a huge crowd without feeling crowded and easily accessible with public transportation.
  • Well maintained park with great playground suitable for kids of all ages. There is also a large splash pad, trails for walking and cycling and nice sunset views. Just beware of the may flies in May, although harmless - they produce large swarms!
  • Cute little park. Great place to go for a walk, run or bike ride. Walk ways are nicely paved and accessible. Fun playground for kids as well. Really like it!
  • Beautifully maintained public park. No smoking. No camping. Family-friendly.
