Champion Park Open House - Get your FREE tickets here!

Saturday, August 4, 2018 - 11:00am to 3:00pm

Join us for the 2nd Annual Champion Park Open House on August 4, 2018.  

Since this is a limited event, please ensure if you are securing tickets for a group, each person is accounted for as we don't want tickets going unused.

Register for the free event HERE .

Take a stroll around the 55-acres of land, watch the rainbow trout swim in the pond, check out the wildlife in the wetland area, or simply partake in the games and activities.  A passport will be given to children, encouraging them to engage with the many interpreters and receive stamps after each visit.  A complete passport can be traded in at the end of the visit for a prize.  

BBQ hot dogs will be offered, or bring your own  picnic and sit on a piece of the vast and beautiful property.  As Champion Park is part of our sustainable community, please ensure all waste goes home with you.  We encourage using reusable containers if you do decide to bring a picnic lunch.
