Provincial Park Image of the Day: Waubaushene Beaches

Strangely, I have no photos for this park which I have apparently passed dozens of times.  I could find none online.  Having lived near the park for ten years, my mother had never heard of it either.  I think it sounds like an interesting place to visit -not today, but when it is not raining -and I really have no reason not to.  One fascinating site is either in or next to the park boundaries, the segregated cemeteries of Coldwater, Ontario.  Side-by-side, on Highway 12, are a Catholic and a Protestant Cemetery.  I have walked through them and onto a trail behind them so maybe I have been on the park grounds.waubaushene beaches waubaushene cemetery
