The Village of Port Clements has three parks within its boundaries: the Community Park, Millennium Memorial Park and our Sunset Park & Campground.
Our Community Park located at the end of Park Street hosts a variety of recreational activities and is the site of our largest celebration. Annually the Community Park is the site of our community’s Canada Day Celebrations, that ends with our famous Mudbog races.
At the park itself there is a large soccer field, with a track field running loop around it the soccer fields, baseball diamond and stands, children’s playground, a mudbog, various concession areas (open only during community events), a covered area near the soccer field, public washrooms, and a large paved area that was formerly a tennis court. The large parking lots offer easy access to the park.
The Sunset Park Trail also leads to the entrance of our Community Park at the end of Park Street, offering easy access to the Park and to the rest of the trail network from the Park
Millennium Memorial Park “Millennial Park”
The Millennium Memorial Park, also referred to as the Millennial Park, is home to the historic St. Mark’s Anglican Church, a surviving seedling of the famous Golden Spruce Tree, a war memorial, and a wall with the names of all the community members and families present in the Village at the turn of the Millennium. It also offers the short Millenial Trail that is a beautiful walk through the park from Bayview Drive to Park Street.
Sunset Park & Campground
The main feature of the Sunset Park is the Sunset Park Trail that spans the entire park from the original trail entrance at its small parking lot to the Bird Tower that overlooks the Yakoun River Estuary. Offering gorgeous views of Masset Inlet and the Yakoun River Estuary, the Sunset Park has its name for a reason offering breathtaking sunsets and sunrises. It is an attractive and enchanting path that winds through statuesque trees along the northern shoreline of Port Clements that terminates at the Campground and two-story Bird Tower.
The new addition of the Sunset Park Trail starts at the centre of the Village, near the Port Clements Museum, and wanders through the community to join the original Sunset Park Trail.
