Selkirk Provincial Park

Welcome to Selkirk Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. Selkirk Provincial Park is located on the north shore of Lake Erie and offers 200 meters of shoreline ideal for sunbathing or swimming. The area is mainly clay which provides an excellent habitat for the shagbark hickories that grow in the region. Various other plant species can be found in the park including blue grass, devil’s paintbrush and St. John’s Wort.

The first settlers to the area was a Mennonite family who arrived shortly after the American Revolution in 1776. They were followed by an influx of United Empire Loyalists. During the War of 1812 there were many skirmishes off shore between the British and Americans. Sandusk Creek, part of the park, was the site of a 19 th century boat building enterprise.
