Chippewa's 90th Birthday - 2011

Sunday, July 17, 2011 marked the 90th birthday of Chippewa Park. Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated with us! Thanks to your support this event was a huge success!

 Originally opened in 1921 (see history link), Chippewa Park has sustained itself as a favourite park in Thunder Bay all these years.



 The celebration began  on Deja Vu Day on June 21st, 2010, where former employees came back to relive old memories!

  Retired Parks and Recreation Manager, Bill Beavis is joined by City Councillor Larry Hebert and Port Authority CEO Tim Heney in a symbolic return to their old jobs this week.  Bill was the Manager from 1973 to 1986 and was in overall charge of the Park. Larry Hebert worked at the park in 1967 and not only operated the rides but helped install them at the park that year.  Tim, in his younger years sold the ride tickets then was promoted to ride operator.
