History

A great "free" place to take the kids and adore the gardens and history. Fees are present for tours, but you don't have to have a tour.

"Colonel Sam's" Parkwood estate has breath-taking grounds combined with an historic mansion, located virtually in the centre of Oshawa. Afternoon tea in the gardens is a must for any summer visitor. If you make only one stop in Oshawa, be sure to see Parkwood.

This estate is one of the last intact remains of the lifestyle that was in the inter war years in Canada. The Parkwood Estate was used as a private residence for the longest of times, however, now is a heritage site and is... more
