Bronte Creek Provincial Park

The Establishment of Bronte Creek Provincial Park in 1972 as a near urban provincial park heralded a new era for Ontario's provinical park system.  The park was first put int regulation in 1975 (O.reg.661/75).

Bronte Creek Provincial Park is endowed with a river valley rich in beauty and ecological significance.  The Bronte Creek valley corriddor is desingated as a provincially significant life science resource.  it is the least distrubed and most continuous river valley system on the southward sloping shale plains north of Lake Ontario.

Bronte Creek is a recreational class provincial park.  In 2006, over 380,000 people came throughout the yeat to hike the valley, fish the creek, swim in the pool, picnic with family and friends, enjoy park programs, visit the farms, walk their dogs, ski and toboggan.  Park visitors represent over 25 known language groups and include a spectrum ranging from young families to seniors.

The Goal of Bronte Creek Provincial Park is:

"To be, for the people of Ontario and visitors: A gateway to Ontario's provincial parks by offering a wide variety of high quality recreational and educational experiences; a linkage to park lands, surrounding communities, the region and other park systems; an oasis for the protection of significant biological, geological and cultural resources in an area with outstanding oppourtunities to enjoy outdoor recreation."

144 electric service campsites + 4 group camping areas were established in 2001 and opened  to the public in the spring of 2002.  The campground serves to introduce visitors to camping in a safe and convienent location.  Bronte Creek Provincial Park was one of the first parks to offer a Learn To Camp program.

Many vistors are first introduced to the Provincial Park system and the park via the popular Maple Syrup Festival.  An award winning, month long festival that attracts 45 000 visitors is a leader in the province as it is a departure from how Ontario Parks created park programs.
