ECOLOGICAL & recreational information


   Chippawa is a park and place of serenity, beauty and historical proportion. The carefully manicured space is an excellent place to unwind. You can run and play or simply relax and reflect in the vast space the park offers. Bring a soccerball, football, frisbee, baseball and glove, or whatever activity you enjoy. You may also enjoy a picnic under the shade of one of the parks gorgous mature trees. In the summer months make sure to bring a volleyball to play on the parks beach volleyball courts at the south end of the park. If you're local to the area you may even enjoy joining a recreational league!

 

   In the winter months you may enjoy skating, once the still pond has been converted into a rink. If there has been a heavy snowfall, you might enjoy snow-shoeing around the park space. The gentle hills of the park also offer an excellent space to take children tobogganing.    

 


HISTORICAL inforMation


   Chippawa Park is home to The Welland-Crown War Memorial. This memorial is a nationally significant sculpture. It is the last large World War I memorial to be built in Canada, commemorating soldiers and their sacrifices made for our communities.
