At Sandbanks Provincial Park
Date: Thursday August 2 and August 16, 1pm to 4pm (two events this year!)
Location: Lakeshore Lodge Day Use Area
This popular event in the form of an 1890’s-style picnic features games, music, a corn roast with lemonade and hayrides around this historic part of the Park has something for all ages.
The Lakeshore Lodge was first built as a simple summer retreat for local tourists wanting to spend time near the fabled sand dunes of West Lake. Its popularity spread over the decades leading into the 20th century, and soon the simple lodge became a first class hotel, offering accommodation for tourists from as far away as Toronto and New York State.
Sadly, the lodge burned in 1982, just as studies for a restoration were being undertaken.
Today’s visitor can enjoy this beautiful spot, and explore the remains of the old lodge.
