Things to Do in Kingston

Cataraqui Community Centre

This facility has two ice rinks and is home to the Cloverdale Hall and Sunnyside Hall Meeting Rooms. The Cloverdale softball diamond is also on the premises, as well as a canteen to buy munchies.

Lake Ontario Park

Situated in the scenic locale of Lake Ontario Park, this attraction features regular entertainment. It remains open weekends only starting mid-May, with weekday openings added in mid-June.

Portsmouth Olympic Harbor

This harbor is located in the Portsmouth Village, a historic park-like area ideal for walks along the shoreline. Home to the annual CORK regatta, this harbor was initially the host of the 1976 Olympics. The docks can accommodate power and sail boats.

Frontenac County Schools Museum

Explore an early 1900s schoolroom or tour the facility with the assistance of a costumed tour guide. An archival collection (late 19th-20th century) and public school elementary records are also on the site.

Fort Frontenac

Once a French trading post and military fort built in 1673 to control the fur trade in the Great Lakes Basin and act as a protective barrier, this fort was designated a historical site in 1923. It has gone through several archaeological investigations.

Portsmouth Village

This heritage area has many old buildings made of brick and stone that were once full of villagers who worked in tanneries, breweries, and shipyards in the 19-century. Although the village was annexed in 1952 due to hard economic times, the Kingston historical society has preserved the historical background of this village.
