The Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay Department of Community Services & Recreation is pleased to advise residents that Kinsmen Park is now open throughout the holiday season for snowshoeing and walking activities.


The response has been overwhelming, so we have decided that effective Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the hours of access be:

To make the holidays a little brighter, the Department of Community Services & Recreation has been busy decorating to give the facility a truly festive spirit.
