O is for Ontario Place

Ontario Place is an adventure park that sits out in Lake Ontario near the
Canadian National Exhibition grounds. 
It will soon get a complete overhaul and redesign to bring it up to date.
 Here we have the main entrance as it stands today.

Signs

Looks nice now, I'm sure it's be ten times nicer after the renovation.

Clytie said...

I wonder what they will do with the old sign, if they put up a new one?

Greyscale Territory said...

I like how this sign seemes to be "netted" and you can see around and through it! Quite lovely!

Lesley said...

hmmm, where'd my comment go??

anyway, I have always liked the rounded font of this logo.

Joy said...

I like the curve of the bridge. Nice capture with the frame of the sign. Yes I'd be tempted to walk across the bridge.

Postcardy said...

Their sign doesn't look very adventurous.

Genie said...

Love the little humped bridge. They are lovely to look at from the computer, but I have a terrible time walking over them. I feel like I am going to fall backwards. I kind of like the older style of sign...but then I like the old because I am older myself.

Pat said...

I like the sign's understated elegance and simplicity.

VioletSky said...

@ postcardy: it was more of a park and green space when it first opened.

Dinah said...

Lovely and welcoming sign! I hope they do it justice with the overhaul ;-)

I like the bridge -- looks like there would be an adventure on the other end !

RedPat said...

I just read in the paper that entrance is free all summer to the grounds - will have to get down there - it's been years.

Beverley Baird said...

I had the Ontario - just not the Place! lol
When I lived in TO we went there often during the summer. I hadn't heard they were refurbishing it. It is quite a spot. Thanks for reminding me of it.
Have a great weekend coming up!
