KINGSTON, ONTARIO — As part of the government’s recent move into Step One of its Roadmap to Reopen Ontario plan, St. Lawrence Parks Commission is pleased to announce the opening of its historic site, Fort Henry in Kingston, Ontario on Saturday, June 19th, 2021. To comply with public health measures, advice and restrictions, Fort Henry will be offering modified outdoor programming in Step One.

Fort Henry will continue to bring history to life so that guests may learn from the past from a safe distance. The Fort will be offering outdoor self-guided tours and 60 minutes of rifle firing, music, and artillery demonstrations. The talented Fort Henry Guard will be stationed throughout the Fort to offer interpretation experiences.

The 2021 season will be a different season for the Fort. The commitment to welcoming guests back safely remains a top priority. Guests are asked to plan ahead and be prepared as Fort Henry adapts to new health and safety measures.
