Come take a walk- you never know what you might find!
Winter is a spectacular time to visit Presqu’ile Park, near Brighton, Ontario. Winter is when Presqu’ile reveals its secrets. Go for a walk and you may have the park all to yourself, except for the birds and animals that call it home. Look closely, you may see a Red Fox, a Barred Owl (pictured above), or even a Snowy Owl on a spectacular ice formation out on the lake.
Have you ever heard of an ice volcano, or an ice dragon? Well, Presqu’ile’s got them! The action of the wind and the waves on the north shore of Lake Ontario make incredible natural sculptures on the shore. Sometimes it is hard to believe they even belong on planet earth!
Beauty on the Beach
Though Presqu’ile is known for its sandy beaches and swimming in the summertime, you’ll never see beaches like these in the summer. Wind off the lake blows the water onto any surface in its way, creating surreal landscapes, Sunset is a symphony of fire and ice.
Come and Visit!
Presqu’ile is open every day this winter. It’s located south of Brighton, between Toronto and Kingston, Ontario. Come for a visit – you won’t be disappointed.
