Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Earl Rowe Provincial Park (Alliston)

Some water hole!

Beaches at Earl Row Provincial Park are not as busy as those located around Lake Simcoe. There are actually two beaches connected by small bridges straddling the reservoir. Children will enjoy crossing over the wooden bridge to reach the park store by the western beach. You may rent canoes and paddle boats as well as bicycles at the Information Centre there. Those who settle on the eastern beach are closer to the gigantic shallow pool the size of a football field (it took me 350 long strides to circumnavigate it!), and a small playground. When we visited, we missed the fish ladder in the dam across the Boyne River (only a few minutes from the two parking lots). There's also a 5-km lookout trail at the northern part of the park I would like to investigate next time we go.
