Four Season Outdoor Recreation Destination
Lily Fielding was a humble philanthropist and lifelong resident of Long Lake, devoted to her family and community. Passionate about the outdoors, she dedicated her 100th year to celebrating her roots with a generous donation of 300 acres of land for the creation of Kivi Park. Kivi Park is the legacy of these passions, a destination for families and the community to come together to enjoy and recreate in the pristine setting of the boreal forest of her childhood. In short, a four season outdoor recreation and wellness destination to be enjoyed by all.
Lily’s Founding Vision
Lily’s vision for the park also reflects her view of the Greater Sudbury community, which is the gateway to Northern Ontario, and the most significant social, cultural and economic hub north of Toronto. Kivi Park clearly plays its part. In the few short years since opening, the Park has played host to numerous local and provincial sporting and cultural events and has been the chosen location for numerous philanthropic events and activities supporting local charities and organizations. It is also the only Para-Nordic training centre in Ontario and the training ground for countless other athletes.
The Park already has established a foundation of trails and attractions to engage and challenge a broad range of visitors, from toddlers to seniors. Growth of the trail system will not only evolve the Park’s growing reputation as a must see destination, but will also develop more space to create memories, preserve and maintain precious green space, and provide an oasis for outdoor adventure that is accessible to all, regardless of age, skill or physical ability.
What’s in a name?
Kivi, meaning rock in Finnish, celebrates the history of its settlers.
It also pays homage to the park’s position at the heart of the Canadian Shield, which forms the geological core of North America. Today, this formation boasts biodiverse experiences right inside the park boundaries.
