Turkey Point Provincial Park

Park

Turkey Point Provincial Park has something for everyone. Mountain biking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, swimming, and its very own golf course, are just a few of the activities that this park provides. It will keep you coming back for more, and you will see new things every time you visit! Turkey Point Provincial Park has been running since 1959, but the original settlement of Turkey Point dates all the way back to 1793. Some say the park was named after an early settler with a prominent Adam’s Apple, but the more likely origin is from the parks wild turkey population. The large beach stretches for over two kilometers on the Lake Erie shoreline. It is sheltered from the lake’s undertow, making it a great place to swim. The three hiking trails in the park wind through many fascinating spots, like an old hatchery pond. Since Turkey Point is part of a network of some of the most significant parts of deciduous forests that remain in Canada, biodiversity is incredibly diverse, especially with respect to the birds and insects. The protection that this park provides for its unique habitats, along with its countless recreational activities means this park is a must see!
