Mark S. Burnham Provincial Park

Park

To see the extraordinary fire-engine red of the fall foliage, nothing beats a walk through the Mark S. Burnham Provincial Park. This park has mixed forests of towering sugar maples, beech, elm, and hemlock that are among the oldest in Ontario. In fact, biologists have counted the rings of one of the sugar maples and found it to be 330 years old! This means it is the oldest known living tree of its kind in Ontario. Mark S. Burnham Provincial Park is a day-use park and does not have many facilities, but this only adds to its natural charm. It is a great place for a quiet walk through the forest, or a peaceful picnic during warm summer days or warm autumn colours. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
