Notes from "15 Historic Places to Visit in Ontario This Summer"

Rondeau Provincial Park is the second oldest provincial park in Ontario, Canada. It was established to protect one of the last remaining clusters of old-growth Carolinian Forest in Ontario. Within its over 3000 hectares, you’ll find coastal wetlands, dune habitats and much more! It is also home to one of North America’s best examples of a Cuspate Sandspit.

Explore the Rondeau peninsula as extends into Lake Erie as well as the protected bay it forms. Don’t forget to practice ‘leave no trace’ as it’s an important habitat for a variety of species at risk!
