The Friends of Frontenac Park would like to welcome you to this site about beautiful Frontenac Provincial Park. The Park was created in 1974 and occupies 5,214 hectares within Frontenac County in south-eastern Ontario. The central concept of the Park is called "Threshold to Wilderness." As such, its main objective is to teach wilderness skills in a semi-wilderness settings. Check out the Skills Training Program schedule. But Frontenac Park is much more than that: it is a wonderful place to backpack, hike, canoe, camp and observe nature.

What an amazing turn out for the Trail Sweep on 12-April-2014. A grateful thank you to the 42 volunteers who participated and the 3 who tried but could not make it because of road flooding. What a great way to end National Volunteer Week. Everyone returned with their feet wet and one volunteer unintentionally went for a wee dip. Fortunately, the sun was shining - it was a glorious warm spring day. Trail work was done on Tetsmine, Arkon, Bufflehead, Corridor, Dedication (the new trail to open soon), Cedar, south shore of Big Salmon, Doe and Arab. The chilies and trimmings were scrumptious, thank you again to all involved.
