Charlottenburgh Park will be filled with red, white and fun on July 1 to celebrate Canada’s 152nd birthday! The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) will be hosting a Beach Party and all are welcome!
Located on the St. Lawrence River just 19 km east of Cornwall along County Road 2, Charlottenburgh Park is a popular destination to celebrate Canada Day. The Beach Party will run from 11 AM to 4 PM with a DJ, BBQ and tube rides offered by Tubies for Fun. Admission will be FREE for all day-use visitors on July 1.
“The Charlottenburgh Park Beach Party will be a great opportunity for families to cool off on what’s typically a hot summer day. When not swimming, beachgoers can play volleyball, hike a nature trail, or rest in the shade under our many mature trees,” says Lisa Van De Ligt, RRCA Communications Specialist.
Visitors can plan to spend their Canada Day long weekend at the Park by booking a campsite or cabin. Surrounded by trees and wildlife, un-serviced and serviced lots offer campers an opportunity to relax and connect with nature. Bookings can be made online at www.rrca.on.ca.
“Canada Day family-fun activities are planned across Cornwall and the surrounding area of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry. Traditionally, the Optimist Club of Lancaster hosted a Canada Day fireworks celebration at Charlottenburgh Park. This year, their fireworks celebration will be a short drive away at the Smithfield Park in Lancaster,” adds Van De Ligt.
The RRCA is proud to bring the community together to celebrate our beautiful country along the great St. Lawrence River.
