Bronte Creek Provincial Park

Bronte Creek is a natural oasis between Burlington and Oakville, in the heart of the densely populated Golden Horseshoe. This 684 hectare park is for day use only and is a welcome treat for the many city dwellers that live in close proximity.

From archeological studies it is concluded that aboriginal people of the Archaic Period lived here as many as 5000 years ago. They hunted, fished and harvested wild plants. The Mississauga tribe re-occupied the area and continued to live there until 1820. In the mid 1800's the land was used for agriculture including; logging, apple farming, grape vineyards, and pear farming.

Inside the park visitors will find The Children's Farm, a 150-year-old barn has been transformed into a huge children's play loft for climbing, jumping and having fun. Below the play loft are stalls that are home to a variety of barnyard animals. Visit in the spring and see all the newborn animals and the spectacular displays of Ontario’s provincial flower – the trillium. Bronte Creek is also home to one of the largest man-made swimming pools in North America. It has a surface area of 1.8 acres. At its centre, the pool is 6 feet deep. The pool is staffed with certified lifeguards.

Nature centre in the Bronte Creek Provincial Park, exhibits live animals, aquariums, terrariums, local reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish and insects.

Visitors can enjoy activities like hiking, biking, skiing etc on all the seasons. Best camping season is from April to October.
