Chippewa Park & Wildlife Exhibit

Chippewa Park is the perfect place for children and adults to enjoy a nostalgic day of old fashioned fun at one of Thunder Bay's most treasured landmarks.

A favorite since 1921 during the golden age of amusement parks and renovated throughout the years, Chippewa Park has preserved its 1920's charm by maintaining many of the original rides, while updating the park with modern facilities.

Guests can enjoy the parks' historic wooden carousel, a two-abreast 'Country Fair' model, features twenty-eight hand carved and decorated jumping horses and two chariots as well asother classic kids' rides  and a Wildlife Park that have made Chippewa Park an iconic Thunder Bay attraction for over 90 years.

Situated only 15 minutes from the city, the park has a breathtaking location nestled on the shore of Lake Superior with 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 the day.

Amenities include washrooms, showers, laundry facilities, community kitchen, groceries, firewood sales, souvenirs, and internet access.

The Wildlife Park features an elevated view of animals and birds native to Northwestern Ontario; and showcasing them in their natural environment.
