What better way to cool off on a hot summer day than to make your way to Moncton’s state-of-the-art Superplash Park! This fully-accessible water playpark features a number of different stations and play areas, suitable for children of all ages. This park is the culmination of a number of years of contributions by the Atlantic Nationals Automotive Extravaganza and their Host Club, Greater Moncton Street Rods.
Winter by the lake means many things to many people. To the kids, it's a game of pickup hockey that starts at the break of dawn and winds down just before dark. To happy couples, it's skating hand-in-hand under the stars, not a care in the world. It's all available at the Skating Oval in Centennial Park. Colorfully lit up at night, it's one of the city's all-time favorite treasures.
A build team consisting of volunteers from the City of Moncton and the Home Depot joined forces in November 2006 to construct a large outdoor rink in just one day! The rink construction is part of the KaBOOM! program which is a national nonprofit organization that envisions a great place to play within walking distance of every child in North America. The rink features large-scale murals done by students from District 2. The rink is a great place to enjoy a friendly game of pick-up hockey and is located next to the playground.
There's nothing like getting back to nature for some people, and what better way than by taking advantage of the many kilometres of cross country ski trails in Centennial Park. Each winter, hundreds of Monctonians bundle up in their warmest winter clothes, wrap their scarves tightly around their necks, and strap the skis to the roof before heading out to Moncton's greatest natural resource for a brisk, crisp workout in the snow. The trails are all professionally groomed, and the longest trail (orange) is well lit for night skiing. As well, they are free of charge to anyone who wishes to brave New Brunswick's winter weather. When the snow starts falling, head on down to the park.
Everyone remembers hauling out the old wooden toboggan and heading out to the hills for fun in the snow. Centennial Park is the perfect place to recreate those memories of old, or create some new ones for a new generation of giddy youngsters. These hills are alive with the sound of laughter every time it snows.
Originally built with the support of the Moncton Rotary Club as the focal point for the Centennial Park Day Camp operation (now Camp Centennial), the Rotary Lodge has evolved into an important entity over the years. Complete with large activity rooms, boardrooms, a well-equipped kitchen and full dining facilities, the Lodge still serves the city's recreation program along with a host of private functions. Home cooked group meals are available by reservation, and the Lodge's unusual convention and seminar facilities in the woodland heart of an active recreation park are beginning to capture the imagination of local meeting planners.
