MORRISBURG, Ontario – The St. Lawrence Parks Commission has announced that Upper Canada Village will re-open to visitors on Thursday, June 17.

Upper Canada Village will be opened with modified programming starting on June 17 until June 30 to accommodate public health guidelines.

“Beginning on June 17th and running to June 30th, Upper Canada Village invites guests to enjoy the beauty and serenity of its site as a living history museum as a sneak peek before the Village opens fully later in the reopening framework,” reads a statement from Upper Canada Village. “A 90-minute outdoor guided walking tour will take guests through the Village presenting exciting historic facts and scenic views. Please note that during this time, heritage buildings will be closed and the only interpretation on-site will be the walking tours. As we embark on a new season, the commitment to welcoming guests back safely remains a top priority. Guests are asked to plan ahead and be prepared. Staff will be relying on the cooperation of all to adhere to physical distancing and onsite guidelines.”
