The Friends of Chippewa Park

"Bringing Chippewa's Past into the Future"

Chippewa Park has been a favorite with city residents and visitors since it opened in 1921.  Located on along the beautiful coast of Lake Superior, Chippewa holds  an amazing view of the Sleeping Giant, this is your destination for family fun, scenic beauty and relaxation.  With so much to see and do Chippewa is your perfect summer getaway.   

  

 Stay with us this summer, whether it is in your RV or tent or in one of our new wheelchair accessible log cabins. Click here for more details  

 

The park offers a number of amusement rides aimed at the young and not so young including the historic Merry-Go-Round.  Animals of Northwestern Ontario are showcased in our Wildlife Exhibit . These animals have all been raised in captivity or have been rescued as abandoned offspring.

On Sundays we feature local musical entertainment as part of our Sundays in the Park Concert Series. The first concert will be held on July 5 and the last on September 6.

Tuesday Night Jam Sessions

Chippewa Park’s Pavilion Coffee House is alive with music every Tuesday night at 7 PM starting on June 30 and continuing to September 1. Musicians are invited to participate in the ‘open jam’ and the audience is invited to listen, dance and even sing along when appropriate. The evening features a mix of old and new country, folk and some rock & roll and gospel. Existing seating is limited to the first 100 so it would be wise to bring your own chairs. There is no admission but we would welcome a ‘good will’ donation to help cover expenses. Coffee, tea, juice, cakes and cookies are available at no cost. The evening ends at 10 PM. The pavilion and adjacent washrooms are wheelchair accessible.
