Come on out for a Day of Family Fun in Berwick on June 25!

16-Jun-2017 16-Jun-2017

South Nation Conservation (SNC), McIntosh Park Committee, and Chalmers United Church invite you to Berwick on June 25 for a fun-filled day for the family!

The day’s events begin at 10:30 am and will wrap up at 3:00 pm.  There will be a free lunch with music and children’s games at the McIntosh Park Conservation Area located at 6 Cockburn Street, Berwick, Ontario. 

“The park is a natural gathering spot,” said Holly Nyenkamp, SNC’s Communications and Outreach Assistant. “Families can enjoy a picnic, a stroll along the walking trail, and the beautiful gazebo… a monument to the pioneers and founding families of the area.”

Promoted by retired Berwick farmer Floyd Dingwall, past SNC Board member and committee member, the park began to take shape after the MacLeod Family donated about four acres of land just south of now the Township of North Stormont office.

The McIntosh Park Committee, composed of community volunteers and SNC staff, has been instrumental in assisting with care and maintenance of the park.

“McIntosh Park is a great example of how a community can come together to create something wonderful and lasting,” Nyenkamp observed.  Loved ones can be remembered at the park through SNC’s Tree Dedication Program.  For a $300 donation, a tree will be planted in memory of your loved one and their name will be placed on the park’s memorial wall.

The McIntosh Park Conservation Area is part of SNC’s network of 14 Conservation Areas available free of charge to residents, providing countless recreational opportunities to discover wildlife and their habitat in Eastern Ontario.  Visit to learn more about a Conservation Area near you.
