Bronte Village Business Directory
By the 1950’s Bronte Harbour became known as a summer resort location for vacationing families from Toronto and the surrounding areas. While there were some cottages built specifically to meet this new demand, it was not uncommon for low-income Bronte residents to move out of their homes for a period of time so that they could rent to families on holiday. Today, Bronte Harbour serves as a waterfront destination for families to enjoy boating, kayak, canoe, seadoo, trophy sportfishing, bird watching and photography, cycling the trails and strolling the boardwalk.
The Waterfront Trail is one of seven historic trails in Oakville. This trail was built upon many existing First Nations trail systems that were in place for thousands of years prior to European settlement. The Waterfront Trail was first constructed in 1995 and at the time was 350km long. Today the tail stretches over 1600km along the Canadian shores of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair and the Niagara, Detroit and St. Lawrence Rivers, the Waterfront Trail connects 86 communities and over 405 parks and natural areas including wetlands, forests and beaches. Created to protect, celebrate and reconnect people to our Great Lake waterfronts, the Trail has become a well-loved and used recreation, fitness and green transportation amenity and a world-renowned tourism attraction. Enjoy the Trail for a quick stroll or as part of a multi-day, long-distance adventure.
