Winter in Chesley, Ontario

Share this story...

Named in honour of the Krug family who operated the successful local furniture manufacturing business from 1886 to 1987, Krug Memorial Park was willed to the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie in 2013. Located nearby the meandering northern Saugeen River, this is the perfect stop for a quick snowshoeing adventure this winter in your own winter wonderland. Connected to the Chesley Heritage Trail, which offers 4km of linear trails and follows along the Saugeen River, this trail also connects two historical sites and two bridges which offer beautiful scenic views of the snow-covered town and ice sheathed Saugeen River. With the trails not maintained during the winter, it is important to bundle up and dress warm and comfortable for your winter journey.
