Upper Clements Park Receives Funding for Upgrades


Upper Clements Park will soon get an upgrade, thanks to an investment from the province.

Premier Stephen McNeil announced $300,000 in funding today, March 20, for the Upper Clements Park Society to improve the theme park.

“Upper Clements Park is a place where Nova Scotians and visitors come to have fun and experience the beautiful Annapolis Valley and all it has to offer,” said Premier McNeil. “Investing in projects like this helps build and maintain strong communities.”

The park has been operating in Annapolis County for nearly 30 years. It features many attractions including rides, water facilities and pathways. The funding will improve the park’s main attractions including the carousel, roller coaster and flume ride. It will also go towards improving the infrastructure by adding new metal roofing and removing the enclosures from the former wildlife park.

“Improving Upper Clements Park will help it continue to attract thousands of visitors to Annapolis County every year and offer employment opportunities for people in the community,” said David Brown, chair of the Upper Clements Park Society.

Investment in community and cultural organizations is a vital part of the province’s culture strategy, The Nova Scotia Culture Action Plan. You can read the full plan at https://novascotia.ca/culture/.
