Ontario Place is located on the waterfront of Lake Ontario and is a great place to enjoy a day of family fun. Ontario Place is internationally acclaimed as being a cultural, leisure and entertainment parkland that is made up of 96 arches of fun. The complex extends throughout three man-made islands along the Lake Ontario waterfront and has lots of rides, attractions and entertainment.

The park has over 30 rides and attractions at Ontario Place that can be enjoyed by children of all ages. Ontario Place opened in May 1971 and featured a five pod pavilion complex, The Forum, pedal boats, a marina, restaurants and the world’s first permanent IMAX® theatre, the Cinesphere. 

Construction started on March 17, 1969 and took an estimated 1.5 million person hours of labour to build at a cost of $29M. The gate first opened to the public on May 22, 1971.
