Located on the shores of Georgian Bay, nestled in the forested lands of Tiny Township, Awenda Provincial Park stands out from the rest. Over 30 km of trails lead you along the tall Nipissing Bluff, down into a low lying wetland. They wind around lakes that formed during the retreat of the glaciers, and into an ancient sand dune system. Keep in mind that the environment of these dunes is very fragile, so please help protect them by avoiding climbing on the dunes and bluff! Canoeing and swimming in Kettle’s Lake are great ways to experience this natural setting. On a calm day, you might take a canoe out to the famous Giant Tombs island in Southern Georgian Bay. This secluded island is around 5 km long, with a soft, sandy beach, ideal for swimming and sunbathing in the summer.There are four additional beaches on the mainland that are great for swimming and playing in the water. In winter, the 17 km of backcountry ski trails provide a great escape from the grey sludge of the city. Winter is the perfect time catch a glimpse of the wildlife that lives in this spectacular Provincial Park.
