Park / Area History

The park was first started in 1959 by the merchants of Canwood and in 1961 Canwood Regional Park was formed. Through the hard work of volunteers - campsites, playground equipment, ball diamonds and upgrading of the golf course from seven holes to nine holes were completed. A few years later a modern washroom equipped with showers were added. A special project was put in place to install sprinklers for watered fairways and in the past year the sand greens have been seeded to grass greens. We have a very scenic park nestled in a jack pine forest with and inviting nine hole grass green golf course.


Barrier Free Access

The washrooms, shower houses, camp kitchens and the concessions are all wheelchair accessible. There are picnic tables that can be utilized by people in wheel chairs.
