Slovenski Park, which comprises nine hectares in the Aberfoyle
area near the junction of Highways 401 and 6, was purchased
in the mid 1960's. At that time one third of the property was
swamp land. With dedicated voluntary work by members of the
Slovenski Park Association the swamp gave way to camping sites,
a soccer field, a volleyball court, lawn bowling facilities,
two swimming pools, and a fish pond. Over four thousand trees
were planted to preserve and beautify the grounds.
Ten years ago the association constructed a chapel, where St.
Gregory's priests of Hamilton celebrate Mass during Slovenian
picnics. Five years later an Alpine style clubhouse was erected.
In 1983 a walkathon was organized by the members to raise money
for the Dom Lipa Etobicoke building fund. Slovenski Park is
open year round and provides recreation for families from the
Toronto, Hamilton, and Kitchener areas.
