"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  

There is much to do at Chippewa Park which officially opens on the May 24th weekend each year. In fact the annual international Kite Festival will be held at the Park on Sunday, May 24 from noon to 4 pm. http://www.thunderbay.ca/Living/recreation_and_parks/Events/Kite_Festival.htm 

The park offers a number of amusement rides (opening May 23) aimed at the young and not so young including the historic Merry-Go-Round.  Animals of Northwestern Ontario are showcased in our Wildlife Exhibit (now open for the season) . These animals have all been raised in captivity or have been rescued as abandoned offspring.

The Bill Beavis Family Fun Day, a day of activities designed for families to spend a day in the park together will be held on Sunday, June 28 from noon to 4 PM. There is no fee to participate and there are always lots of prizes and cake. We need volunteers to help make the day a success. If you are interested please email Board Member Aranka at aranka04@live.ca

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 nights in July and August will see local musicians gather for a night of jamming. Dancing and singing along is encouraged.
