Join us for a walk to imagine Ontario Place

Ontario Place for All, together with Patagonia, Park People, Environmental Defense, Protect our Winters Canada, and Swim Drink Fish, will be joining Patagonia’s ambassador to Ontario Place, Caroline Gleich, to introduce her to our wonderful community.

The Ontario government is looking at proposals for the future of this area. As residents who benefit greatly from the recreational, and soothing use of the grounds, we need to express how important it is to keep this space as wild and accessible as possible.

Ontario Place is already a space that is cherished by Ontarians and used by countless citizens and visitors to escape to nature on the shores of Lake Ontario.

As one of Patagonia’s leading global activists, Caroline is asking outdoor enthusiasts, environmental advocates and social activists in the GTA to walk the grounds of Ontario Place to imagine what could be when it comes to the redevelopment of the 155-acre grounds.

Come and join us all on Saturday, January 18 at 10:00 am!
