Time for Cake  
2017 is a BIG year at Bonnechere Park. Established as a centennial project in 1967, the Park turns 50 this year. And the Friends of Bonnechere Parks turn 25. So it's a double celebration and a good reason for cake - starting at Winter Magic. Yum!

Feed the Book Tree
Bring books for all ages to feed our Book Tree. Leave a book, read a book, take a book. Share the love of reading! 
Winter Trails
Our scenic trails that wind through a wetland habitat are a favourite of local cross-country skiers. Snowshoers enjoy trekking along our campground roads and pathways.

Winter admission to Bonnechere Park is FREE, but donations in support of the Friends are always welcome. Park your car at the gate to walk or ski in.

Virtual Time Travel 
If the winter weather is keeping you indoors more than usual, consider some time travel though 20 000 years of history along the Little Bonnechere River.
