Worth the trip to Long Lake
Oct. 2020 • Couples
We did the 5 km trail that leads to the lookout. Gives you a good sense of the woodlands and the geology around there. Mostly birch stands in the lower sections but some hardwoods on the upper levels. Surprising view from the top. Bring a camera. Warning, the 5 km trail has some steep sections and the rocks are not always secure. I’m glad we wore our hiking boots and I would take my Nordic poles next time. It rained the day before and there were many really muddy sections up high where the water didn’t drain from the rocks. I was told the 3 km trail is flat and easy by comparison. We walked by the children's playground which looked amazing.

World class nordic ski trail network, awesome hiking/fat bike trails
Feb. 2020
The trail systems at Kivi park are top notch. Everything is run by a volunteer staff who do a great job.
Lots of sliding and play areas for younger kids.
There is a nice fire pit area for warming up, roasting weenies, etc.
Also a well lit skating trail through a pine bush.
Never a dissapointment.

No Longer Free, $9.00 Daily Fee
Jan. 2020
This park was donated by a local woman for use by everyone. Initially it was free to use, but now an annual membership $100 or daily use pass of $9.00 required..That's a bit pricey for a one hour walk.

Hi DayDream631212, We are sorry to hear you feel this way about our fees. Mrs Fielding generously contributed over $3M to fund the development of what is arguably Sudbury’s premier outdoor recreation destination. It was Mrs Fielding’s wish that Sudburians and visitors enjoy the park free of cost until development was complete. Now that the park is finished and faces an annual operating cost of $250,000 it is time for visitors and patrons of the park to help assist with costs associated with park upkeep and maintenance. A user-fee system is best practice at facilities like this across North America. This is a natural course of events for facilities like Kivi. We were mindful when determining the pricing model for our Kivi Passes and we understand the various monetary commitments of our park users. For this reason, we created our Affordability Fund. This ensures that anyone who wishes to enjoy Kivi Park but might not have the means can do so through the fund. The fund is supported through the generosity of our community, fundraising initiatives like our Tree Lighting event and our Pay it Forward Program. For those who wish to support the Affordability Fund they can do so by purchasing a Pay it Forward Pass. This pass is then matched by an anonymous donor, with funds being matched up to $100,000, making it the largest fund of its kind. By purchasing your Kivi Pass you are supporting the maintenance and long-term sustainability of Kivi Park and helping to ensure that the park will be here for generations at the calibre that you have come to enjoy and expect from Kivi Park. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or visit our website for more information www.kivipark.com. Sydney Little Marketing Representative Kivi Park

great place .. if you are monied.
Apr. 2019 • Solo
If you are into x-country skiing, or snowshoeing, or are willing to spend the money to rent gear to try fat tire bikes etc. and you have your own transportation this place might be your Jam.
If you are not moneyed; if you rely on public transportation; if you like to feel close to nature; if you go for hikes in the woods to get away from it all (meaning you don't see any infrastructure, like roads and crowded trails that run parallel to each other within a few feet and a terrain that is very landscaped devoid of animal life); then this place might not appeal to you.
To many Kivi Park appears as a crowded playground in the back yard for our cities most privileged; after all it was bought and paid for by them.

Hi Active Outdoorsman, Yes, our park offers many activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking, and if visitors do not have their own equipment we’ve tried to heighten their experience by partnering with Adventure365, a locally-owned business, to offer rental services. There are many other activities to be enjoyed as well such as ice skating, hiking, two playgrounds, a multi-use sports field, basketball court, outdoor rink as well as canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Visitors who are looking to get to Kivi Park via public transportation can book ‘GOVA Zone’ which connects you from the bus to Kivi Park with a partner taxi at no extra charge! We have also been actively trying to have the City of Sudbury add a paved shoulder for bike lanes connecting Long Lake Road to Kivi Park. You will notice the front end of the park is busier than other areas as it’s quite a hub! However, our park is comprised of 450 acres so there’s a lot of space to get engulfed in the wilderness. Many of our guests share photos of the abundance of wildlife that has been witnessed throughout the park. We invite you to explore Crowley Lake and the trails at the south side of Kivi Park as they become more secluded the further you go. Thanks for sharing your feedback, we hope you join us again soon. Warm Regards, Sydney Little Marketing Representative Kivi Park

Snowshoe Trails
Nov. 2018 • Solo
I've been to this park several times in the summer and winter and each visit gets better and better. I tried the 7 KM snowshoe trail this time and really enjoyed the different terrain. The snowshoe trails run separately beside the cross country ski trails and all were nicely groomed. This is a beautiful park to get some exercise and fresh air and best of all , there is no charge to use the park. There are litter boxes in various locations and the users keep the park very neat and tidy. We are very lucky to have a facility like this within the city of Sudbury.
