Lake Ontario Park, Kingston

(4.1/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Great place to bring the kids on a hot summer day to burn off some energy and play in the splash pool. Great outdoor activity. 
  • The play equipment was fully renovated/updated in 2013/14? While there is no beach there is lots of park and trees. Huge splash pad and playground. Bathrooms/showers, beach volley ball net, boat docki...  more »

  • Great place to enjoy quiet time to reflect and enjoy open spaces. The areas and especially the pathway to the water is clearly marked wheelchair accessible but it is very steep and difficult to return to the start if using a manual wheelchair.
  • Came here with the kids on are way to Niagara Falls. Great place to stretch are legs and to play with the kids.
  • Great park for a visit! Great paved trail can get you there from Portsmouth if you're looking for a walk along the water. There is also a splash pad for kids and great sunsets!
  • Fun park, nice paved trails and a great splash pad. Always events and activities going one. Great water access. I would not reccomend coming here after dark, lots of sketchy stuff going on.
  • Very beautiful place, the grounds are well maintained. Great for picnics or family outings, they have a few BBQs on site just bring the charcoal. Just don't expect a beach to swim, it's all rocks. That's it's only downfall.
