Kivi Park  300+acres of Cambrian Shield overlooking Long Lake in Sudbury, Kivi Park is set to be a premier destination for sport, outdoor activity and adventure.

100 years ago on this date, Tom Thomson's body was recovered in Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park, 8 days after his mysterious disappearance.
Thomson was an influential Canadian artist and iconic figure in Canadian culture and history. An artist and avid outdoorsman, Thomson had a direct influence on the group of renowned Canadian painters known as the Group of Seven with whom he shared an appreciation for the rugged, natural scenery of Ontario landscapes. Like Thomson, the Group of Seven captured its stark beauty and vibrant colours through the use of broad brush strokes and then liberal application of paint on board and canvas. His death was a great tragedy, but his name lives on in his art and his legacy. 🖼 : The West Wind was discovered in Thomson's studio after his death and was donated by @cdnclubto to the @agotoronto.

What a dapper bunch in this fun throwback picture!
We appreciate the generous contributions of the Fielding family over many generations. From farming and helping sudbury grow through @fisherwavy and other business efforts to creating and building two major community parks and and many other significant charitable efforts across Northern Ontario.

Our mission at @kivipark is to provide residents of not only Sudbury, Ontario, but all of Ontario, with a world class destination for #sport, #nature and #adventure. Kivi Park is committed to creating an environment that allows for as many citizens as possible to get out, get active and to actively experience the outdoors.

@pioneerconstruction has been working diligently throughout the spring months to complete trail enhancements and park upgrades to make it possible for everyone to experience the park safely and comfortably.
The 18 foot wide cross country ski trails on the left side of the Warming Hut have now been covered in a uniform, crushed gravel surface that are perfect for wheelchairs, skateskiiers, strollers, scooters and those with mobility challenges. These are also great for small children and those on crutches while recovering from surgery.
Thank you to #kivipark founder Lily Fielding and to @fisherwavy for the generous donation of the crusher dust.

These lady-slippers are stunning in the beautiful sunlight! Last week @greatersudbury 's Land Reclamation crew transplanted over 200 trays of forest floor mats into the park! Forest floor mats are removed from areas subject to conversion from forest to another use, such as mine exploration or highway construction, and are transplanted into areas where trees are growing but the vegetation below is sparse. These mats contained 18 different species of herbs, ferns and shrubs that will work to promote forest floor regrowth. While often overlooked, the forest floor plays an integral role in the creation and maintenance of a healthy and resilient forest. Thank you Foreperson Christina Hurst and crew for helping with @kivipark 's regreening initiatives and for making the #kiviparktrails even more beautiful band healthy for our visitors to enjoy for generations to come.

Since the opening of @kivipark in summer 2016, many in our community and beyond have made a wish on the #kiviparkwishingtree. We have enjoyed seeing the hundreds of pictures of park goers sharing in the beauty and magic of the tree. However, with so many visitors wanting to experience the wishing tree for themselves, the #wishingtree is unfortunately becoming damaged.
The fence has been placed around the tree in order to allow it time to recover. Please respect the fence and help us save the tree. Our wish is that many generations to come will have a chance to make their own memories at the #kiviparkwishingtree.

The @kivipark Team was honoured to celebrate Founding Council Member @briansavage49 as his commitment and dedication to his community was recognized with a #paulharrisfellow awarded by the Rotary Club of Sudbury. Brian received the award during a fundraising dinner and dance held in his honour at the @societa_caruso in an evening filled with great food, entertainment and shared memories of his illustrious hockey career and achievements both on and off the ice.

Keeping with Brian’s commitment to helping the young children in our community and beyond live happier, healthier lives, all proceeds from the dinner will help support children’s health care needs in Northeastern Ontario through both the @neokidsfoundation and local community projects undertaken by the Rotary Club.

Following the 2017 Cancer Centre Walk/ Run/ Bike for Hope that Kivi Park proudly hosted on June 11, @kivipark founder Lily Fielding approached the @ncfsudbury and offered to match any and all donations made during the following week following the event. Inspired by her incredible community support and sparked by her supreme generosity, an anonymous donor subsequently stepped forward to match Lily's donation of $25,000. Due to the generosity of our community, Lily Fielding and the anonymous donor, the final tally of funds raised through event registrations and donations before and after the 2017 Cancer Centre Walk/ Run/ Bike for Hope totals over $105,000. Every donation directly impacts our community and goes towards directly supporting vital patient care, new equipment purchases and world class cancer research right here in the City of Greater Sudbury! Together, we have and will continue to make an impact.

Happy first day of summer! Today was the longest day of the year, did you spend it at #kivipark?

A #flashbackfriday view of the fat biking trails at @kivipark for #naturephotographyday! Fat bikes get their name from the wider than normal tires that make biking in the snow possible. This winter sport has been around since 2005 but has gained popularity in recent years as a fun and exciting activity that gets you enjoying the outdoors in the winter! We may be a week away from the official start of summer, but it's never too soon to start planning your winter adventures at #kivipark

The ringing of the bell at the Northeast Cancer Centre symbolizes a significant moment - the end of active treatment and the beginning of a life free of cancer.

Participants in the 2017 Walk/Run/Bike for Hope @kivipark had the opportunity to ring the bell when they reached the finish line.
By taking part in the walk, each and every participant makes a difference in not only our community, but in the lives of every patient. Every penny received by the @ncfsudbury stays in our community and directly supports vital patient care, new equipment purchases and world class cancer research in our own backyard.

Summer is in full bloom at @kivipark
A heartfelt “Thank You” and appreciation to Ward 9 Councillor Deb McIntosh @sudburydeb and the wonderful volunteers who donated their time this morning to create the beautiful new garden and flowerbeds at the park entrance. Kivi Park is now more beautiful than ever; just in time for the 2017 Cancer Centre Walk/ Run/ Bike for Hope on Sunday.
Volunteers like these are the roots of our community and with their help, @kivipark will only continue to grow and blossom!
