The Centennial Park Celebration and Everything Ontario, Canada event will run from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 17.

The Centennial Park Celebration event is designed to build awareness, excitement and broad public participation in the 150th anniversary of Ontario and Canada and meant to highlight the beauty of our newly unveiled Centennial Park. The Opening Ceremony will pay tribute and recognize the commitment of our community partners who have provided positive contributions to the past, present and future of Centennial Park.

Activities include interactive sports demos (tai chi class at 11:30am, a walking soccer game at 1:00pm) a community art project, a guest speaker, various musical talents, the unveiling of our City’s Canada 150 mosaic mural, food vendors and much more.

The Opening Ceremony will also include a formal ribbon cutting and name unveiling ceremony for the new Suncor Agora.  The Rotary Clubs of Bluewaterland and Sarnia-Lambton After Hours will also be serving a BBQ lunch during the Opening Ceremonies.

In the fall of 2016, City staff applied for a grant with the government of Ontario - the Ontario 150 Community Celebration Program. The City was successful in obtaining funding that would cover up to 75% of the total spending cost.

Park users attending the event are asked to stay off newly seeded areas to prevent damage to growing grass.

Attendees are encourage to use Sarnia Public Transit or bike to the park.  An unmanned bike corral will be available for use, located to the north of the Bayshore Parking lot.  Please bring your bicycle lock.

Attendees bringing lawn chairs are asked to keep chairs off the curing cement at Suncor Agora.

Event parking is available at the following locations:

  • The parking lot adjacent to Centennial Park, on Harbour Road;
