Walking Tour: Ontario Place

Abandoned rides, a revitalized Cinesphere and a new park make it one of the most unusual spots in Toronto for a walk.


Ontario Place is a park in transition. It was closed in 2012 but re-opened to the public this year. Now it's in the middle of a long-term transformation— which makes it an interesting place to visit.

A word of warning for those driving down: the parking lot is shared by Budweiser Stage and can be expensive. I drove down on a Tuesday evening during Warped Tour and parking was a $25 flat rate. Yikes. Normally it's $3.25 / half hour.
