Where to see beautiful fall foliage in Ontario before the season ends

Oct 25 2019, 4:50 pm

Aside from visiting local pumpkin patches, getting lost in corn mazes, and indulging in pumpkin spice treats, looking for foliage in Ontario is probably our favourite fall activity.

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, a number of parks currently have great leaf-peeping conditions.

As of Thursday, October 24, colour progression has improved thanks to the recent chillier temperatures throughout the province.

The current report is showing that most of the leaves in provincial parks are now in the peak viewing stages.

However, some parks have already passed this stage and trees have already started to lose their leaves.
