Create a map to Centennial Gardens
Centennial Gardens was unveiled in 1967 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Canada. It is located in Merritton Ward and provides a variety of passive recreational opportunities. The Merritt Trail passes through the park and provides opportunities to view the locks and path of the First and Second Welland Canals or travel further north or south along the Canal Valley. At the south end of the park, beneath Westchester Crescent, are the remains of one of the stone locks from the Second Welland Canal. This is a beautiful park to visit, plan a picnic or have lunch. Within the park, visitors can view a special Centennial gift to the City, a totem pole.
The St. Catharines Disc Golf Club has installed an 18-hole disc golf course in Centennial Gardens. Disc golf is very similar to traditional golf, except instead of hitting a ball into a hole with a club, players throw a disc into a metal basket. People young and old can enjoy disc golf and best of all, if you already have a disc, it's free to play! Disc golf can be played year round, even in the snow. Contact the St. Catharines Disc Golf Club for more information about the course and to learn about how you can get involved.
Improvements will be made to Centennial Gardens in 2017, including:
This project was made possible with support through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program/Avec l'appui du Programme d'infrastructure communautaire de Canada 150, the Niagara Region's Waterfront Investment Program and the City of St. Catharines.
