Canoe Launch

The Princess Point canoe launch is one of two locations, the other at Valley Inn, from which to explore Cootes Paradise and Grindstone Creek. This location is the perfect launching point to begin exploring the largest marsh at the western end of Lake Ontario. The waters are calm and shallow – with some areas only 3ft deep! During the trip, one can expect to see turtles, fish, and many species of birds including: black-crowned night herons, great blue herons, ring-billed gulls, double-crested cormorants and caspian terns.
