Bronte Creek summer ghost walks
The walking dead may be closer than you think. Perhaps right next door in Bronte Creek Provincial Park.
Some say the Park's old Spruce Lane farmhouse is haunted. Now you can find out for yourself at one of the Park's ghost walk tours on Aug. 10 and 24. If you dare to go, you'll discover the truth about the supernatural side of Spruce Lane Farm with real life stories and evidence gathered by paranormal investigators. You'll also listen to personal accounts from costumed guides as you tour the century old buildings by lamplight.
This guided evening tour is not intended to be scary but is intended to be educational to share occurrences, observations and unexplained happenings in the farmhouse, while exploring Victorian beliefs and customs regarding death and the afterlife.
This 45 minute tour is suited for ages 7 and up and is not stroller or wheelchair friendly. Before the ghost walk you can enjoy a picnic at one of many picnic tables under the shade of nearby trees. Children 10 and under will not want to leave the park without a visit to the Children's Farm and Playbarn. The outdoor swimming pool is open until 6 p.m. but there is an additional fee.
A daily vehicle pass costs $16 but seasonal and annual passes are also available. Bronte Creek Provincial Park's day-use area is located one kilometre north of the QEW on Burloak Drive, between Oakville and Burlington (Exit 109).
