Presqu’ile Provincial Park
Address: 328 Presqu'ile Parkway, Brighton, Ontario, Canada, K0K 1H0
A mecca for birdwatchers every spring and fall, this peninsula south of Brighton is a major flyway for migrating birds, home to waterfowl and shorebirds, and a staging point for Mexico-bound monarch butterflies. A long boardwalk crosses wetlands where marsh birds live and fish spawn. On islands to the west, colonies of gulls, cormorants, terns and herons nest. At the tip of the park are Ontario’s second-oldest operating lighthouse and the original lighthouse keeper’s cottage.
