Chippewa Park

chippewa banner

has been a favourite with city residents and visitors since it opened in 1921. Located on the shore of Lake Superior with 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 the perfect summer getaway.

Many improvements have been made since it was first opened, and the Park's initial charm has been retained through the preservation of the original dance hall/pavilion - now a focal point for special events such as weddings and reunions.

Discover Chippewa Park! Take a walk on the wild side and discover some of Ontario's native birds and animals in spacious habitat enclosures. Ride the bumper cars and the tilt-a-whirl. Kick back and relax in the picnic area, play baseball or horseshoes, and stroll down to the beach for an amazing view of the Sleeping Giant. You can even stay overnight in the campgrounds or book a log cabin. Join the thousands of families who visit Chippewa Park for a week, a weekend or just for the day.
