The Ennismore Journal: A family visit to Algonquin Park for the weekend
Over the weekend the kids were begging to go to Algonquin Park for the day. On Canada day we decided to go for a drive up. There is so much to see and do at the park we keep going back 5 to 6 times a year. This is our second visit in 2018.
If you approach Algonquin Park from the East you will see these amazing gates to the park. The gates are no longer used to greet visitors but I believe they still used for office space
The Logging Museum
This is my kids favorite place in the park. They have amazing displays in the centre and have a short movie to explain life as a logger. There is a pathway you stop at various stations to see how the camp or work site worked. Worth the drive to the park just to see this.
The parks connection with Tom Thompson and the Group of 7 is legendary. There is stations to learn about their art. There is also a live art gallery for you to purchase and view many pieces with different mediums.
The Visitor Centre
The visitor centre offers food, souvenir store, museum learning and observation deck. Lots to see here. You will learn about life in the park, past and present. You will learn about the parks animals and vegetation.
After the park on the East Side you will find an amazing store called Algonquin Outfitters. This outfitter offers Swift canoes and kayaks for purchase and rent. They also have everything for your camping needs.
