Hanukkah is nearly done, Christmas is around the corner and the New Year beckons. In other words, ’tis the season of peace, joy and astronomical hydro bills.

Winter at Ontario Place offers something for everyone, from a Winter Light Exhibition, to skating, to taking in the beauty of Ontario Place illuminated by fairy lights or a stroll on the newly opened Trillium Park and William G. Davis Trail! Come down to enjoy the magic and fun of winter by the lake all season long. In addition, the Cinesphere is now open year-round with regular screenings. Join us for opening weekend December 8 – 10!
