Nov 9 2018, 8:32 pm

With snow on next week’s forecast, you need to savour every minute of fall while you can.

And really, what could be more synonymous with fall than taking in the beautiful foliage throughout the province.

Because there’s something magical about seeing the leaves slowly change colour from vibrant green to fiery red.

While there are plenty of incredible places to watch the leaves change right here in our own backyard, the real gold, however, can be found at various parks throughout the province.

And it just so happens that according to the Ontario Park’s Fall Colour Report, which indicates how the leaves are changing across the province, every major provincial park currently has incredible leaf peeping conditions.
