The City of Kenora boasts 12 recreational parks, 5
beaches, 10 ball fields, 2 skateboard parks, 3 tennis courts, 16
open/green spaces and 8 play structures. There are a total of over 400
hectares of green areas within the City limits. Anicinabe Park is a jewel among the City of Kenora parks.
Anicinabe, loosely translated in Ojibway means the
“the People”, therefore Anicinabe Park is the People’s Park. This park has always been a gathering place beginning with the
aboriginal peoples and continuing on today with many people from our
local residents to tourists from all over the world using the park,
beach and campground.
One of Kenora's official trails, the Rat Portage
Urban Trail, meanders through the park and leads you to the City Centre
where you can find fine dining, shopping, the Kenora Recreation Centre,
with indoor pool and the Lake of the Woods Museum. You can enjoy the many special events held on the Harbourfront
and see the extraordinary site of Husky the Muskie, a 40 foot, 2.5 ton
pike looking as if it had just jumped out of the Lake of the Woods.
Stay at Anicinabe Park, with a spectacular view and
access to the Lake of the Woods and only minutes from Kenora’s city
centre. A vacation paradise!
