Black Creek Pioneer Village is a department of Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
Immerse yourself in the 1860s and explore an authentically re-created country village of the Toronto region.
At Black Creek Pioneer Village, visitors discover 40 historic buildings, 70 rare and heritage breed animals, 10 gardens growing flowers and plants from heirloom seeds, and exciting programs that engage people of all ages. They meet costumed educators who demonstrate and involve visitors with trades and crafts common in 1860s’ Ontario, tap their toes to music of the era, laugh at the hysterical antics of the History Actors, and have fun engaging in hands-on activities throughout the village!
Black Creek Pioneer Village uses its collection of 50,000 artifacts, interactive offerings, and monthly events to encourage visitors to explore the past while reflecting on our present. By examining the lives of real people who lived in the Toronto Region, visitors of all ages consider history from multiple perspectives and understand that the story of the Toronto Region is, in fact, many stories told from many points of view. It is located near York University.
