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.

    This one Kingston's gems. Wonderful place to take the kids and burn off steam, or to go for a nice walk by the water. Huge sandboxes down by the water perfect for warm summer days. The splash pad and play structure is also great.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    This park was a haven to us: spacious, lots of activities and fun for kids. I recommend it for anyone who wants to go in the evenings.

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
