Ontario Parks: Not To Be Missed Aug 04, 2011
So you've seen the CN Tower, the Skydome, Harbourfront, the Eaton Centre, and other requisite sites in downtown Toronto. When pondering what your next activity should be, consider exploring one of the many beautiful provincial parks that abound in Ontario. An hour to hour and a half drive north of Toronto (depending on the number of locals rushing to escape to cottage country) will take you to Springwater Provincial Park (SPP). Located in the Township of Springwater (population 11,500) in Simcoe County, SPP offers the chance to get back to nature, explore some interesting trails, and enjoy the sounds of the great outdoors (ok, there is the occasional train whistle...).
Five summer trails varying in length from 1.0 to 5.0 kilometres allow visitors to explore the forests at their leisure. Picnic areas are available for use, and well-marked parking lots and a main road make it easy to navigate the park.
Children and adults alike will appreciate viewing the animals who have been rescued and brought to Park to be cared for. The wildlife that are housed in SPP, which are native to Ontario, include wild turkeys, foxes, coyotes, wolves, beaver, deer, and a black bear.
SPP is a wonderful place for a day trip outside the city. Just don't forget your bugspray!
The entrance fee to the park per vehicle is $16.00 - much less than the cost of taking the family to see a movie, without the fattening buttery popcorn and sugary drinks. Need I say more?
