Paddle-to-the-Sea Park Dedication

Last September, residents and visitors gathered in Nipigon, Ontario, to dedicate a park where little Paddle-to-the-Sea began its journey. The community proudly unveiled a wooden sculpture commissioned for the occasion by from local chain saw artists.

The Paddle-to-the-Sea Park was more than 10 years in development, according to Joan Hoffman writing in the museum’s newsletter, Holling Collection News #6. The Grand Opening is scheduled for May 14, two weeks from now. Early reports are that kids love it, and grandparents have a hard time convincing them it’s time to leave.

For further information, contact Ms. Hoffman at or The Nipigon site carries multiple photos, directions and news.
