Open Year Round!

Please visit responsibly. We ask that masks be worn at all times while on the property – including in the parking lot, on the viewing platform and the surrounding areas. Physical distancing circles have been installed on the concrete pad and we also encourage the use of the grassy areas around the pad to allow for ample spacing between visitors.
We can’t wait to see you again at the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area. Be safe!

View the night sky as it is meant to be seen

These days, it’s not easy task to find a patch of clear night sky that’s not obstructed by light pollution.

But, just 37 kilometres north of Napanee the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area (DSVA) is ready to wow you with incredible, clear views. This spot is the most southerly point in Ontario that offers a night sky experience very similar to what was available more than 100 years ago.

With ample parking and a large concrete pad for camera or telescope setup, DSVA is perfect for anyone looking to observe the natural wonder of the stars. The viewing area is open from dusk until dawn – no registration required and admission is free!
