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.

  • I think they could have a better splash pad like the one at City park, but I've always liked Lake Ontario Park. They always have events going on in the good weather and it's a good place for the kids to play. Parking isn't always the greatest either.
  • 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.
  • It's a great place to take the kids. There's a nice splash pad plenty of room for playing catch or anything really. There's a nice picnic area with plenty of tables ands it's right on the water
  • Best Pokémon spot in Oshawa. Good splash pad and playground for kids, hiking trail and boardwalk, and beach area.
