More Info & Historical Significance: Cape Croker Park is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year! The park first opened in 1967.

Camp the weekend away, play volleyball, go boating, go fishing, swim, hike and rent some gear. Be sure to make your way to the two-kilometre boardwalk, which passes through the lush wetland in the lovely Cape Croker Park. Here you will be able to study the engineering of the beaver dam built by generations of beavers. Beavers need more than half a metre to keep their underwater entrances from freezing in the winter. Marvel as you appreciate the beaver’s unique way to stay safe from predators.
