We have an opportunity to do a great winter paint out at the John R Park Homestead., Monday December 15th, 10:30 until? The gates open at 9:00 if you want to come early.

We don’t expect the weather to be this cold!  weather reports say 49° F

North shore of lake Erie, Temperature was -14.5 C wind speed 14 km/hr.

March 2014 North shore of lake Erie, Temperature was -14.5 C wind speed 14 km/hr.

The weather maybe cold so bundle up. Especially your feet and hands. The washroom barn will be open, and heated. They have a kitchen so you can make a warm drink. This will be our last opportunity at John R Park before they close for the winter on the 19th.
