Prince Edward County offers something for kids big and small and is the perfect family getaway destination. Treat your family to a Prince Edward County adventure and let your kids spend some quality time with your inner child!


girlPicton:
County Youth Park A free public park that features a skatepark and playground. 375 Main St., Picton.

Birdhouse City, a collection of whacky and wonderful birdhouses, some are exact replicas of County landmarks. County Rd. 8, also known as Union Street.
Picton Harbour is an easy walk down Bridge St., to the marina with yachts and lesser boats.
Benson Park playground is behind The Victory, 205 Main St.; Crystal Palace playground is at 375 Main St. E. right beside a fabulous free skate park; Delhi Park is huge and just south of Main St., access easily from Elizabeth Street.
$5 at Giant Tiger or the Dollar Store will keep kids busy for a while ( a rainy day idea).
Ice cream at Scooperman!

Bloomfield:
Millpond Conservation Area & Park, Mill Street, Bloomfield features fishing and picnic areas.
Ice cream at Slickers!

Wellington: As well as a safe pebble beach and boardwalk, Wellington village has a lovely park on the lake side of Main Street.

Cherry Valley: on route to Sandbanks Provincial Park and many campgrounds and resorts, ‘the valley’ has a small playground behind the Town Hall at 1625 County Rd. 10 plus the waterfront Lions Club Park with a small dock and boat launch. No playground equipment but lots of room to run and play.

West Lake Willy’s Water Park is as much fun as it sounds!

Quinte Isle Campark: Splash park, Mini golf, & Horseback riding

Point Petre: Beachcomb on the long pebble beach for driftwood and fossils, swim off the big flat limestone ledges, it’s a quiet beautiful place for a picnic – but remember to leave only footprints behind!  See photos.

Sandbanks: Obviously. Most kids need nothing more than a big sandy beach and cool, shallow water to have a brilliant day. More info »

    • You didn’t mention the PEC youthpark in Picton…So sad. Why did you leave it out? It is an incredible part of the County’s history and existence at this point.
