John R. Park Homestead

In accordance with the Province of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen several measures are in place to ensure your safety at most businesses and attractions. This includes proper social distancing measures, mandatory masks, and as well capacity limits at some attractions. Please contact businesses prior to visiting for service restrictions.

A visit to the John R. Park Homestead and Conservation Area will take you back in time to the 1850s. The house and farm buildings of John and Amelia Park are restored to bring the nineteenth century to life. Explore the Parks’ magnificent Classical Revival home, built in 1842, taste baking from the kitchen fireplace or play with a wooden toy in the children’s bedrooms. See the workings of an 1885 steam engine-powered sawmill and stop by the blacksmith shop to witness the making of small hardware and repairing of farm tools at the coal-fired forge. Peak season May to October.
