Ontario Place, Toronto

Ontario Place, Toronto (must see)

Perched on the edge of Lake Ontario is one of the most happening places in the city, the Ontario Place. Entertaining locals and tourists since 1971, Ontario Place is perfect for a fun-filled weekend with family and friends.

This amazing seasonal waterfront park is spread across 96 acres of land boasting more than 30 mind-blowing rides and attractions. The fun-packed multiple entertainment themes of Ontario Place ensures something special for every visitor, whether it is riding the Bumper Boats, getting a thrill of your life with Free Fall, Soak City- Toronto’s most famous water-themed parks, Wilderness adventure rides, playing mini golf, eating at fancy restaurants or simply taking a long walk at the marina.

The Ontario Place also has the world’s first IMAX theater. Housed in the most spectacular geodesic dome, the IMAX has a single screen which is a whopping 6 stories tall. Here, you can enjoy the latest Hollywood releases along with educational programs and documentaries. Unlike the whole park, the theater is open year round, so even if you visit Toronto during winter, you could still visit the Ontario Place.

Why You Should Visit:
Beautiful views and the grounds are great for walking around.
There are various events/concerts being held and even some affordable fun activities for kids.

Tip:
The Waterfront Night Market held in August has many delicious options!
