As most of you might know, Ontario Place’s Waterpark is no longer open to the public, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to do in this area during the season of sun. The areas that are still open include the Ontario Place Marina, Atlantis Pavillion, Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, and Echo Beach. In other words… the fest side of things. Here’s what happening this summer at some of the great venues-within-venues found at Ontario Place.
