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.See Centennial Park and all Thunder Bay has to offer by arranging your trip with our Thunder Bay itinerary planning tool.
Centennial Park reviews
It was a bit rainy and dreary when we went but we still enjoyed the walk and we ended up at the Current River where these beautiful slate rocks allowed for us to walk on and have a fun photo... more »
A pretty place in Thunder Bay to sit and enjoy a picnic or to explore along the many hiking trails available. Easy accessibility and good trails. more »
Great place to bring the family. Sure wish they had a concession stand! Love to visit the animals. Lots of trails to walk/bike. Play area for kids, old time log cabins to walk through, sledding in the winter.
Holy cow. Where do I even begin. On my trip this was the place I was least excited for. I didn't really know a whole lot about it, and when we got there the road there and the entrance weren't much of a looker. But when you get back to the water, oh my god. It was absolutely beautiful. It was one of the most scenic things I've ever seen. If you go at the right time of year, there are blueberries everywhere. The water is so fun (and yes, it's swimmable!) And you will find endless new things to be in awe over. I deeply hope to go back someday.
