Centreville

This 14-acre theme park is designed to look like a turn-of-the-century Ontario village. You'll love the antique carousel with its fanciful animals. Kids can get plenty of driving experience zooming around in the antique cars, touring cars or fire engines. Spin yourself silly in the self-propelled Beasley Bear Ride and Twirling Tea Cups; or enjoy picturesque views from atop our windmill-style Ferris Wheel.

Getting to Centreville is also exciting with a scenic ride on the Centre Island ferry.
