Ontario Place is a multiple use entertainment and seasonal amusement park in Toronto, Ontario and owned by the Province of Ontario. Located on the shore of Lake Ontario, just south of Exhibition Place(pics), it is approximately 4 km west of downtown Toronto. Opened on May 22, 1971, it consists of three artificially constructed, landscaped islands. Attractions are spread throughout the park, as well as walking trails and food and drink concessions. Traditionally targeted at a family audience, with emphasis on children's activities, the park has a seasonal operating schedule and is closed from October through April, with the exception of the Cinesphere IMAX theatre and private event space. Central to the complex is a public marina and a major concert theatre. Historically, Ontario Place, as a publicly subsidized provincial agency, aims to keep costs, especially for families, lower than comparable attractions.
