Thousand Islands National Park

Relax by the river at Mallorytown Landing

Thousand Islands National Park welcomes you to relax and play on the breezy banks of the St. Lawrence River. From community picnics to family reunions to an impromptu outing, Mallorytown Landing has all the ingredients for family fun: new barbeque facilities and a beautiful gazebo and a playground. Park interpreters are available to share stories of the park and, chances are, you’ll be busy making memories and stories of your own!

Considerations for group day-use visits.

Located at 1121 - 1000 Islands Parkway,  conveniently between Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa, the Mallorytown Landing Day Use Area is a perfect meeting point for families, community groups, and casual receptions. 

Plan your trip

  • Barbecues are available for picnickers and communal picnic tables can accommodate large groups.  
  • Five oTENTik roofed accommodations at Mallorytown Landing provide the perfect base for exploring the Thousand Islands. Wake up to sunlight glinting on water, a panorama of green islands, and a full day of family adventure ahead.
  • The Mohawk Thanksgiving Address has been commemorated in a rock carving at Mallorytown Landing’s scenic lookout. Each image in the carving is also carved into rocks scattered around the grounds. See if you can find them all.
  • Our Thousand Islands-themed playground gets kids rowing like a “river rat” in a landlocked boat, swinging in a bird’s nest swing, and basking like a turtle on a climbing rock.
  • Interpretive panels on the visitor centre grounds celebrate Leaders on the Landscape – local residents who champion a conservation ethic. Join the ongoing story of visitors who help protect this beautiful area for future generations.
  • Butterfly gardens and bird boxes attract wildlife. Borrow a guide book from the visitor centre and try to identify what you see.
  • A 40-metre mural by artist Jan Swaren celebrates Mallorytown Landing visitors. Osprey sculptures made of recycled material by artist Alanna Baird soar overhead.
  • Boats and kayaks can launch, beach, and dock at Mallorytown Landing.
  • Escape the daily grind on 2-km of hiking trails with easy and moderate loops through a red pine plantation and rocky mixed forest.
  • For hours and location, check out the Visitor Information page.
