Overview

Located 37 kilometres north of Napanee, Ontario, the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area is the most southerly point in Ontario offering a night sky experience very similar to what was available 100+ years ago. The site includes a concrete pad for camera or telescope setup, or placement of lawn chairs for general stargazing. It is designed for anyone wishing to observe the natural wonder of the stars. The site has ample parking and includes a large concrete pad for camera or telescope setup. The DSVA is perfect for anyone looking to observe the natural wonder of the stars. The DSVA is always open and hosts monthly events from May through September. Weather permitting, you'll get a laser-guided tour of the night sky and have a chance to take a look through a telescope. These events are a great way for novice stargazers to get acquainted with the night sky. Visit our website for details.
