Fun for the entire family with various activities and, of course, our favourite friend Parka will be attending! Stations will be set up where visitors can build their own flag, face painting, helium balloons and free birthday cake! The day will be packed with fun activities around the site with the much awaited Xplorer 2 Program directed at Teens and Tweens. We will also have our staff presenting the Tug Trent Program, where visitors are asked to be members of the crew on Trent Severn Waterway's very own tug boat. We are encouraging all visitors to participate in our site's Geocaching program as we have 6 different caches to find and at the end you will receive an exclusive collector coin!
We also have available for sale at the Visitor's Centre gift shop a wide variety of kites that we will be encouraging families to get out into our beautiful green space down by the water and fly these majestic wind-toys, enjoying Canada's Birthday.
