- two large picnic shelters,
- picnic tables,
- campfire rings/pits,
- a well-equipped playground,
- outdoor fitness equipment, and
- a social ice skating surface during winter months
Spontaneous Use Hours
Available for use from 5 a.m. - 11 p.m. as identified in the Parks Bylaw when not rented or programmed.
Large Picnic Shelter
Lions Park has a large picnic shelter located in the north part of the park (furthest from Sir Winston Churchill Ave) that is available for reservation. The large shelter is suitable for 50-60 people, has seven tables, and there is no charge for bookings. You may bring your barbeque to this spot as there is no barbeque pit attached directly to this picnic shelter site, and there is also an electrical outlet available.
There is also a smaller covered shelter attached to the washrooms; however, it is not available for reservation. There are numerous sites throughout the park, each with a picnic table and barbecue pit; they are all first-come, first-served.
To check availability:
- Go to our Lions Park Availability page
- Select the date you wish to check by either typing the date out or choosing it from the calendar tool.
- The resulting table will show you that day's availability for the large picnic shelter.
Reservations can be made for May 1 through October 8, with the reservation period beginning on March 15 at midnight. Please note, requests will be received in the order they are submitted and are on a first come first serve basis.
