Bronte Creek Provincial Park - little known facts

Changing Landscape

Burlington, Ontario L7R 1H8, Canada

Created By: Bronte Creek Provincial Park


Think of all the changes the area around you has experienced over the past 400 years. Once covered in forest and roamed by creatures such as wolves and elk, this area was cleared for farmland in the early mid-1800's and is now being replanted with native tree species to return it to a more natural landscape. The land area of Bronte Creek Provincial Park was set aside in 1972-3 to prevent the urban expansion that was beginning to reach beyond the bigger urban centres like Toronto.

Little known facts: In 2007 as part of the government of Ontario's 50 Million Tree Program the park planted 40 000 trees. The trees were small root stock, but they took hold and some area are barely recognizable today.

Site 210 is one of our base camps for the Learn to Camp program where people new to camping can learn step by step the proper way to set up a tent, light a propane stove and how to ensure a campfire is really extinguished.
