Hours of Operation

Adventure Park Hours
Victoria Day weekend to Thanksgiving Day
10:00 am – 8:00 pm
(weather permitting)


Parks Canada is applying a special rubberized coating to the splash pad to make its surface less slippery when wet, and therefore make it safer for kids playing there. Unfortunately, several days of warm and dry conditions are needed for the coating to be applied, and there hasn’t been enough warm, dry weather so far to get it applied. A contractor is working on it and we hope it will open soon. 

Parks Canada apologizes for any inconvenience resulting from the delayed opening of the splash pad. The rest of the Variety Heritage Adventure Park is open for people to enjoy. 

Mid-June to Labour Day
