Join the adventures this summer and celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday with Parks Canada. This year only, grab your FREE Discovery Pass and make your way to one of the stunning national parks in Ontario. At Chestnut Park we are lucky enough to have not one, but three national parks in our areas of service, Thousand Islands National Park, Georgian Bay Islands National Park and Bruce Penninsula National Park. This summer there is no better excuse than to immerse yourself in the great outdoors and check out the natural beauty of our province.

Thousand Islands National Park is an outdoor lovers paradise. Located in the heart of Thousand Islands along the St. Lawrence River, the park is home to 20 islands and works to promote sustainable tourist recreation while protecting the land and wildlife. Journey through the picturesque islands and inlets located between Kingston and Brockville, and set up camp along one of the 61 rustic campsites spread across several islands.  Paddle into your campsite where you can stay in a tent or a small cabin and discover panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River.
 
There is plenty to do on the islands. For outdoor enthusiasts the list is endless, from hiking and biking, to swimming and kitesurfing, there can’t possibly be enough time in a weekend to get it all done. Be sure to rent a canoe or kayak and island hop to some of the most spectacular sites in the area. Or if you’re looking for a more relaxing day take advantage of one of the many boat cruises available around the islands. However you choose to experience the wonders of Thousand Islands, you will be surrounded by picturesque beauty and an abundance of activities to help you make the most of the summer months!

Georgian Bay Islands National Park is one of the largest freshwater archipelago in the world. The park is home to 63 islands and stretches across 50 kilometers along eastern Georgian Bay.  The main campground, Cedar Springs, is located on the largest island in the park and is only accessible by boat. Beausoleil Island offers tent and roofed accommodations, overnight and day docking, and over 25km of hiking trails. The park sits on the boarder of the Canadian Shield and offers stunning views and natural wildlife all around the area.
 
Truly an outdoor oasis, there are a wide variety of outdoor activities for visitors to indulge in. Visitors can choose from recreational sports like kayaking and canoeing where they can explore places like Beausoleil Island and Honey Harbour.  If you’re not keen on paddling yourself on the waterway, you can take the shuttle from Honey Harbour over to Beausoleil Island where you can explore some of the 11 hiking trails available in the park. On the Northern Beausoleil trail you will find the natural beauty of the Canadian Shield where you can navigate yourself through the diversity of bedrock and wetlands. Or you can take the trails in Southern Beausoleil as you hike through the lush forests as you take in the sweeping views of Georgian Bay.

This beautiful park is well-known for its stunning landscapes inlcuding the end of the Niagara Escarpment. Perhaps most well known for The Grotto located near Tobermory, it is the destination for summer vacationers. Aside from enjoying the turquois waters of the Georigan Bay, visitors can also challenge the rugged shoreline with bouldering, enjoy the neaarby Fathom Five National Marine Park where you can suba or snorkle to explore underwater shipwrecks or enjoy Flowerpot Island and its geological wonders.
 
Bruce Penninsula National Park is a playground for the outdoor enthusiast. There are so many opportunities for camping, kyaking, canoeing, stand up paddleboaring, bouldering and so many other things!
