Bronte Creek Provincial Park - little known facts


Oakville, Ontario L6M, Canada

Created By: Bronte Creek Provincial Park


A favourite and iconic feature of Bronte Creek Provincial Park. The Playbarn is a sheltered (unheated) area for kids 10 and under to perfect their climbing, jumping and sliding skills. Originally holding hay, rope swings and chain swaying bridges things have change slightly to ensure we comply with current safety regulations. We find that the kids that played here in the 1970 -90's are now bringing their kids! We are so happy we can be that special place for local families.

Little Known Fact: What is unique about this barn is the covered overhang on the lower section. This feature allowed the lower animal stallsto have a covered outdoor area. This style of barn is called a Pennsylvania barn.

James Wilkerson and family operated the 80 acre farm between 1878-1946.

1884 - farmhouse
