Awenda Provincial Park is a provincial park in western Ontario located on the northern tip of the Penetanguishene Peninsula on Georgian Bay. The park occupies an area of 29.15 square kilometres (11.25 sq mi). It is classified as a Natural Environment Park and therefore all land is protected.
Giants Tomb Island, located in southern Georgian Bay approximately 3 km from the mainland is also owned by the park.
Recreational activities at Awenda include, camping, swimming, canoeing and hiking. Geological features include the Nipissing Bluff and kettle lakes formed during the retreat of the glaciers at the end of the most recent ice age. The shoreline consists of a series of sand, cobble, and boulder beaches.
Much of this area was logged around the beginning of the 20th century, so most of the mature deciduous forests here are actually second growth. Although dominated by mature deciduous forest, the park has an incredible diversity of habitats for its size, including: bogs, fens, coastal meadow marshes, dunes and pine oak savanna. It supports a rich variety of plant and animal life -including 32 species of amphibians and reptiles.
