Take a Tour of Country Heritage Park

Next time you go to Milton, check out Country Heritage Park. It’s just a couple of kilometers west of the Highway 25 exit along the 401.

The Country Heritage Park, formerly the Ontario Agricultural Museum, is home to many important historical artifacts that represent Ontario’s rural history including the country’s largest collection of tractors. Each year, they host the Antique Tractor and Toy show; this past show included a 1930s David Brown tractor, which was a hit for tractor enthusiasts!

When the Province stopped funding it, the Park became a charitable organization with the mission of preserving the history of rural life and agriculture in Ontario and of showcasing its evolution through public events and education programs.

During the day the Park houses a private school and office space for groups like the Ontario Beekeepers Association. We recently opened an office there too and now four staff members work from the old Puslinch Township Hall, which was relocated to the Park. It’s a great place to work.

Country Heritage Park is now famous for its weddings: the barn, grounds, and supporting facilities are superb. Some 60 couples said their "I do's" there last year. The Park is also well known for its children education programs and summer camps that offer a hands-on learning opportunity on Ontario's rural history.

Finally, the Park hosts a staggering variety of events; just look at the examples from their fall program:

Come by for a visit. You'll be glad you did. For more information, see countryheritagepark.com.
