A Creek through the Heart of the town
Bronte is the community that frames a lot of the west end of Oakville, in Ontario. Bronte's neighbourhood sweeps from Burloak Drive in the west to Fourth Line, and from Lake Ontario in the south to the Queen Elizabeth Way.
The urban part of Bronte is to the north, east and the southwest. The north-central area is industrialized, the west is varied with farmland and forests overlay the northwest and includes Bronte Creek Provincial Park which cuts off Upper Middle Road.
Twelve Mile Creek (known commonly as Bronte Creek) stream through the middle of town and empties into Lake Ontario.
Bronte’s marine heritage with it’s “small-town” quality shops with qualified services, dining choices, exciting events, harbour, boardwalk and pier, lighthouse, beach, parklands, cycling and walking trails and position midway between Toronto and Niagara, makes Bronte a great place to visit.
Downtown Bronte is a lavish shopping trip, and with over 200 businesses in the area there is something for everyone. Or a walk to the historic Sovereign House on Bronte Bluffs and the Fishermen’s Memorial at the Pier.
During the Waterfront Festival, the east area of the Coronation Park has carnival rides and features game kiosks. And Bronte Creek Provincial Park is used for trailers and tents.
