Description
West of Toronto and east of Hamilton and Niagara Falls along the QEW highway (Queen Elizabeth Way) on the north shore of Lake Ontario, the town of Oakville takes advantage of its natural resources. With two harbors on Lake Ontario—one in Bronte and one downtown—Oakville accommodates both sail and power boaters as well as anglers. Waterfront parks and the Waterfront Trail also grace the shoreline.
Music, variety acts, comedy and theatrical productions are presented at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, in the downtown/harbor area at 130 Navy St.; phone (905) 815-2021 or (888) 489-7784.
Bronte Creek Provincial Park, with its working early 20th-century farm and year-round recreational facilities, is off Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) exit 109 at Burloak Drive; phone (905) 827-6911.
Oakville, headquarters of Ford Motor Company of Canada, also has been a site of the RBC Canadian Open Golf Championship. The tournament, one of the sport's premier events, is often held at the Glen Abbey Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus.
The Jazz Festival in August has performances by international and regional jazz musicians.
