Discovering Ontario is Easier Than You Think

Want a budget-friendly way to visit a few great spots this season? If you haven’t been yet, check out the waterfront along Ontario Place’s East Island. This unique green space evokes the province’s natural landscapes and offers stunning views of Lake Ontario and the Toronto cityscape.

The new Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail was created to reflect Ontario’s identity. It celebrates First Nations’ culture and our province’s rich diversity. Both an educational opportunity and a must-see attraction, the park helps visitors reconnect with the city’s scenic waterfront and learn more about local diversity, ecology and geology.

Here are some key features to look out for as you walk along the waterfront trail that brings beautiful vistas to the heart of downtown Toronto.

Ravine with moccasin identifier. Serving as the gateway to the Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail, the moccasins engraved into the rock of the ravine wall pay tribute to First Nations’ heritage and culture. Visitors are encouraged to “walk gently on the land,” a First Nations’ way of life that inspires community and appreciation for nature.

The pavilion. Inspired by the silhouette of pine tree tops in a forest, this open-air pavilion is surrounded by greenery and features an amphitheater with benches crafted out of rock from the Canadian shield. Located in the middle of the park, the pavilion provides a space for activities and gatherings.

Romantic garden. An open space for rest or play, the concert lawn accommodates large gatherings and recreational activities, creating an inviting community gathering spot.
