General Information:


Bronte is a former fishing village which became annexed in 1962 with the former Township of Trafalgar, forming the Town of Oakville.
Officially founded in 1834, the Village of Bronte has a long history with many changes taking place over the years. From its small beginnings to the cultural and business hub it has become, it has kept its small town feel with a pleasant mix of old and new.

Where is The Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park?
The Park is located at Bronte Harbour, at the foot of Bronte Road

Where can I park my car?
There is street parking along Bronte road but parking is scarce. We encourage you to carpool when possible or take Oakville Transit to the Mall at Jones & Lakeshore and walk 2 blocks south. Many businesses are closed on the Civic Holiday and may have space available. The Oakville Art Society usually negotiates all-day free parking with the Town Of Oakville.
