Canada's Wonderland is here
Maple is a high-growth suburban community, part of the city of Vaughan, Ontario. As an unincorporated area, it does not have precisely defined geographic boundaries, but it grew around the old village of Maple, focused at the intersection of Major Mackenzie Dr and Keele St in Vaughan.
The west branch of the Don River rises to the northwest and flows 1 km west of Maple. A few creeks are to the east and the Black Creek begins west of Vellore. The Oak Ridges Moraine is to the northeast which supplies a lot of water to the Greater Toronto Area.
Canada's Wonderland is Canada's premier amusement park and comprises over 200 attractions, 69 thrilling rides, North America's greatest variety of roller coasters, and Splash Works. In 1972, the Taft Broadcasting Company, headed by Kelly Robinson, first planned building a theme park in the then small village of Maple. Several other possible locations in Ontario were considered, including Niagara Falls, Cambridge, and Milton, but Maple was finally selected because of its closeness to the City of Toronto and the 400-series of highways.
