About Country Heritage Park

 

Remember when . . . like Once Upon A Time, is the start of something special, usually a statement from folks who remember with longing an easier time. The truth is, no time is ever easy - which is why Country Heritage Park engages in real life "remember whens", setting the stage for what was, coupled with the backdrop of what is, and where it will lead tomorrow. It is the evolution of innovation, and with any insightful dialogue, requires the words Remember when . . . As in remember when horse power was defined by the number of heads and tails swishing rather than what is found under the hood of the latest vehicle? Remember when people grew food for their family and maybe five or six other people - and ate seasonally because that was the reality of being Canadian? Remember when we were glad for the life that was accorded to us because routines did not yet exist and change was.

Country Heritage Park has all of that - but adds a twist to the reminiscing. We are a theme park to yesteryear; rooted in our farm, food, and rural lifestyle heritage, offering an 80-acre site that is an unparalleled step back through 185 years of Canadiana experiences, while reveling in the entrepreneurial spirit of today and highlighting the innovation for our future. Country Heritage Park is a tapestry painted by you, offering a respite from the helter skelter and forging ahead with a community connection to farming, farm animals, farm equipment, tools and crafts, food production, preparation, rural community life, going to school, going to church, attending town hall meetings, having harvest festivals, corn roasts, community auctions, having weddings, holding parades, farm shows and "oooooh yuk muck".

We've got all that, the historic buildings, the exhibits, and a growing list of events and opportunities to visit us, and share our space and hospitality because our community is your community as well - and you are always welcome.

Schools

Curriculum-based, functional, hands-on, entertaining, educational – and fun. Isn’t that what school trips are all about, and it is what Country Heritage Park has to offer all grades and levels of the educational system – from kindergarten to university (and beyond). From bees, birds, chickens, and wagons, to the dirt on plants and reminding them that you are what you eat, we do it all with a flair for the historical. We break the mythology, mix in a dose of reality, and send home a well-seasoned advocate for future generations of innovators and entrepreneurs.

Corporate

Looking for a site for an interesting, fun, and exciting team building event? How about Annual General Meetings? Tradeshows? Showcasing new products? Or maybe just holding a meeting? Shooting a movie? Country Heritage Park can do it all. We are more than a dynamic and fantastic wedding venue, with multiple options for brides and grooms to hold their special day, CHP can add fun to the bottom line of any company or organization. CHP even has tenant space available for those wanting a different office location. Just ask how we can assist with your plans for now and down the road.

Below is a video provided by Big Events which follows a team building event put on at Country Heritage Park. This particular event allowed teams to compete for the 'Field Trip Trophy'. They chose from a variety of activities including wine tastings, tractor trivia, team paintings, butter churning, and bee keeping. The day ended with catered lunch.

Special Events

Country Heritage Park is the perfect setting for any event – indoor or outdoor. Our size, location, and unique mix of space makes us a great venue for any event in today’s marketplace – and we try to accommodate as many as we can. In fact, CHP has showcase events, such as Fords in the Park to Steam Era, to its own events like Summer Fair and Farm Expo, featuring the All Colour Show, Heavy Horse and Super Pulls – and so much more. If you have an event you would like to hold in a truly unique causeway between the rural and urban worlds, the CHP is the right location to provide you with all the amenities for success.
