Set on 300+ acres of Cambrian Shield overlooking Long Lake in Sudbury, Kivi Park is set to be a premier destination for sport, nature and adventure.
Give back to your park this holiday season!
Bring the #family and explore the park during the day, and then watch the tree be lit up at 6 p.m. In celebration of Kivi Park!
Welcome to #WinterWonderland!
The snow has arrived and our grooming team has been busy this morning getting the #skitrails ready.
It is very important to remember the wide gravel trails are now closed for walking and biking. Please do not walk on these trails, they are to be used by the cross country skiers only. The #hikingtrails are located to the right of the warming trailer. Please follow the signage.
The Kivi Park Team
We love seeing the amount of guests enjoying the trails and all of the other great things that Kivi has to offer.
We would like to remind all pet owners of the park policy. We encourage all pet owners to bring their pets however please remember that dogs must be kept on their leashes for the entire time; this includes the parking lot as well as on any of our trails.
Also, it is extremely important that you clean up after your pet so that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a clean and nice looking park. Garbage cans can be found along with Mutt Mitt dispensers with free bags on all of the trails. Please ensure that bags are disposed of properly into the garbage and not tossed along he path or into the trees.
Thank you for helping keep #kivipark safe and clean for everyone to enjoy!
We would like to congratulate all the 2017 40 Under Forty Award Winners! This honour is given to young influential members of our community from entrepreneurs to executives to park leaders.
Our Park Leader to be exact! Melissa Sheridan was among the winners last night and we couldn’t be any more proud. Melissa has held the title at Kivi Park since the beginning and has overseen the development and transformation from a 12 acre park to what it is today.
She liaises with non-profit organizations to plan and execute events, including Cystic Fibrosis Canada-Sudbury Chapter, the Northern Cancer Foundation and Canadian Cancer Society, works with donors and sponsors to continuously expand both the sporting facilities and beautification efforts of the park, acts as park spokesperson and can be found, on any given day, at the park itself, planting trees, cleaning up trails and interacting with visitors. Without Melissa, the vision of the Kivi Park Founding Council of creating a premiere destination for sport, nature and adventure for all of Ontario would not have been achieved in such a short amount of time.
Not only was she recognized as part of our team but as president of her own company, CRCS Recreation. CRCS Recreation is a team of professional playground consultants and park designers who have constructed hundreds of playgrounds, splash pads, sporting venues and park furnishing sites throughout Northern Ontario. Notably, the DJ Hancock Memorial Park in the south end of Sudbury, a splash pad and playground honouring and remembering the young hockey player killed by an impaired driver in the summer of 2014. The park space was formerly the underused and underdeveloped Lockerby park but now it is the site of the Splashpad of Champions, which also includes a new play structure,outdoor gym and memorial statue of a hockey player that will not only help create thousands of new memories for future generations, but will keep DJ's memory for years to come for his family, friends and community.
We are lucky to have you Melissa. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do every single day not just for us, but for the community of Greater Sudbury.
