Park Once!
Park Once, Walk the Rest
Take the Park Once Challenge  

Once you arrive at Bonnechere Park, plan to park your automobile and opt for non-motorized modes of active transportation for traveling in and around the Park.

All amenities including the beach, playground and comfort stations are all within walking and cycling distance, as is the convenient store out on Cty Rd 58.

Sponsored by Wayfarer Insurance, Park Once helps us keep fit while reducing air and noise pollution.

If you plan to participate, inform the gate staff upon registration -- you could win a brand new bike just for taking part!

Canada Day, Art in the Park, Archaeology Day and Eco-Exploration Day Camp
