When I met a friend for coffee and we stumbled into Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park I was shocked that I hadn’t been here before. This outdoor space has something for everyone of every age, so let us tell you why you should go soon.
why should you visit bronte waterfront park?
The better question would be why shouldn’t you visit? This beautiful park has something for everyone, no matter their age or interest. Dog parents will love strolling through the grassy waterfront with their pooches. Coffee talkers can utilize the paved paths and beautiful scenery, including a marina and more sailboats than you can shake a stick at.
is there a playground here?
The playground is relatively new after a recent full park update. Its pirate ship on the ocean theme is perfect for kids with swashbuckling imaginations who love to explore and climb. The rubberized playground surface is always a bonus, especially for toddlers who tend to stumble more than a bigger kid.
What can we do at bronte waterfront park?
I’m serious when I say you can spend the day at this huge park in Oakville. There is ample parking at each end of the park, and it’s easily walkable while still feeling like a good stroll. Right now, the Oakville Public Library has a Story Walk set up. A Story Walk is a set of plaques or posters, spread out across an area, that tell a story. The story featured is called Families Love Eachother by Marcus Logan and Suzanne Muir. The story is translated into 7 languages (English, French, Urdu, Arabic, Chinese, Punjabi and Spanish.
As you walk around, be sure to check out the beautifully painted Muskoka chairs scattered throughout the park. The chairs have become a sort of trademark for Bronte over the years. This year, for the Winter 2021 installment, 6 artists with diverse backgrounds and unique artistic styles were given the pleasure of creating the works of art. Each one, though different, has a lighthouse on it that you can seek out. The chair art installation is safely spaced out, free and available any time until March 2021.
