Developed in 1967, Centennial Park is a large park area that follows the shores of the rocky Current River in the north end of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The park was built to represent the history of logging in Port Arthur (Now part of Thunder Bay). The park features many replicas of the equipment and living conditions on logging camps in the early 20th century. The park also features recreational facilities, such as recreation trails, an animal farm, and a toboggan hill.Activities 1910 Logging Camp Re-creation Animal Farm Recreation trails Craft Shop and lodge Children's Playground "Ride the Muskeg Express Train" Picnic areaHours of operation Logging Camp Mid June until September Long Weekend 8:00am–10:00pm Park and Farm open all year Train Ride Wednesday to Sunday 12:00pm–4:00pm (unavailable in the winter)Admission Entering and exploring the park is free Muskeg Express Train: Ages 5 and under: Free Ages 6 to 12: $1.00 Ages 12 and up: $2.50

  • Love bringing my dog to the off leash walking trail. Some people keep their pups on a lease (makes leashed dogs defensive) when my big girl (shepherd/husky) wants to go check them out. I can call her back though. So it's a good idea to bring your dog here and not allow them to approach leashed dogs. It's a beautiful 15 minute slow walk. I usually turn around and go back to make it a longer walk for my girl. We love it. Careful on super windy days, trees tend to fall over the trail.
  • Great trails for hiking and biking. Varying lengths and levels of difficulty
  • Great walking trails, relaxing atmosphere in city limits
  • Great sliding hill in winter and and hiking trails. Fun for everyone!
  • Great
