Wasaga Beach Provincial Park


Who hasn’t heard of Ontario’s Wasaga beach? Well, if not, you are in for a treat! Wasaga beach is the longest freshwater beach on Earth. Nothing beats a trip here on a hot, sticky summer day. While relaxing on the sands, make sure to take a snapshot of the view of the Niagara Escarpment across the bay. This Provincial Park is one of the most popular spots to visit, offering great swimming and canoeing, and some of the most exciting Nordic skiing terrain. The pine-oak forest, dunes, and, of course, it’s amazing beach, are the most visited in the province. Before Wasaga beach became a popular beach destination, the area was inhabited by the Huron-Wendat people for centuries. Around the 1650s this group was dispersed by the Algonquin people, who inhabited the area until the early 1800s. Subsequently, the 1800s brought the Upper Canada struggle between Great Britain and the United States, which ended around 1815. In 1816 the British established a fort near the mouth the Nottawasaga river near the present day Wasaga Beach. A long history marked by an ancient cultural heritage, merged with its unique beauty, make this park a must-see!
