Best Archery Ranges In Toronto

Are you a Torontonian looking for an archery range to shoot at? Perhaps you are on a trip and want to fire some arrows along the way? Maybe you want to organize an event or party – there’s those too.

All the same, you’re going to want to find the right range for you.

Besides, not all ranges offer the same things.

Some ranges are suitable for some archers, others not as much.

Some accommodate particular needs or have services that may make one more practical than another.

So, I decided to pull together a list to help you identify where is best for you to visit.

Perhaps more importantly, to help whittle down your search and give you some options for contacting before you even arrive.

So without further ado, let’s begin!

Shooting Academy Canada Ltd

The Shooting Academy is a highly respected range that offers various shooting services; from archery, air/bb gun all the way through to knife throwing.

Open 24 hours, 7 days per week, the Peel Archery is a private members only sports club.

They provide access to Ontario’s only 70m indoor archery range and are proactively welcome everyone of all experience levels – from beginner through to Olympian athlete.

Outside of membership and access to the impressive range, that also accommodates 3D targets, Peel Archery offers a range of lessons and coaching programs in recurve and compound bows.

All equipment is provided for such lessons and are suitable for anyone without any former experience or archery knowledge.

“A great place to practice shooting as well as to tune your bow and arrows.

You’ll be able to shoot anything between 1m and 70m, as you can move and position your own target. You can also cut, assemble and fix your arrows using the tools and equipment at the club.

Once you become a member, you’ll gain 24/7 access, so come shoot whenever!”

E.T. Seton Park Archery Range

Located in the E.T. Seton Park, you will find this highly regarded, free to the public, archery range.

The target butts at the archery range are made from Natural Tentest, (a wood pulp material), although you can bring your own if desired.

The distances are set at 20 yards, 30 yards, 50 yards, 60 yards, and 70 yards – so there is a lot to offer here depending on your experience level and proficiency.

While you do need to bring your own equipment, there is a great community feel to the range. Where everyone from beginners to Olympic athletes train.

This is a terrific spot to shoot and practice archery; being surrounded by the beautiful scenery of green forests. You can even hike along the Don River on trails – observing a wide range of wildlife along the way.

Archery enthusiasts bring their own equipment to this public spot with practice targets.

“This is a great place you can go for archery and practice shooting any type of bow (but no crossbows) it has many targets at different distances and it’s free and open to everyone. You need to bring your own stuff so be careful not to lose any arrows because if you miss the target the arrows will go into the grass and it can be hard to find it in the field.”
