Jordan Hollow Park

View Larger Map

Just west of the Town of Jordan, Regional Rd 81 twists and turns and descends into a valley. Here you can find a park and restaurant, as well as a Sunday Flea Market with vendors selling local fruit and other items.

The road crosses over the Twenty Mile Creek here on its journey to Lake Ontario. There is plenty of free parking, picnic tables and pets are welcome. This is also a perfect destination for those wishing to park their car and hike along the creek bank.

If you head north along the Twenty Valley and Creek you will reach Balls Falls Conservation area. Travel south and you will find yourself at the Jordan Historical Museum.

Before the area was made into a park it was always referred to by locals as Jordan Hollow. At one time there was a tourist camp where travellers could rent a cabin for the night. These early tourist cabins have since been remodelled and turned into small homes.

The Jordan Valley Tourist Camp, Jordan Valley, c1920's

The Jordan Valley Tourist Camp is gone now but the building was turned into a restaurant called Butterballs. The area around the restaurant is where the flea market is held every Sunday.

Initially the flea market was much larger and held across the road from the restaurant but in the 1980's the area was purchased by the township and turned into a park
