Oakville Lighthouse and Pierhead Lights

Built:  1889

Viewing:  From the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), exit #118 in Oakville, onto Trafalger St. and go south about 1.4 miles to Lakeshore Rd. (Hwy 2).  Turn right on Lakeshore Rd. and go about 1.1 miles to Forsythe St.  Turn left on Forsythe St. and then, almost immediately, turn left onto an unnamed road that goes down the hill into Shipyard Park.  The old lighthouse is in a private, fenced in area on the riverbank adjacent to the parking area.
