The Chamberlains Park Action Committee (CPAC) was formed on April 24, 2008 to continue and expand on the work done by previous committees dating back to 1999 when Irving Oil Limited donated a sixteen acre parcel of land to the Town of Conception Bay South to be developed as a park.
The mission of CPAC is to develop, maintain, and preserve the Chamberlains Park Site to provide a unique, natural, educational area that is universally accessible.
CPAC and its members are dedicated to promoting this vision and desire to partner with community organizations and businesses to develop the site for the use of present and future generations.
The main trail through the park has been rough cut and widened. With assistance from the Town of Conception Bay South, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Green Team, and Queen Elizabeth 2562 Army Cadet Corp, CPAC has been able to complete about six hundred feet of trail including gravel and boardwalk sections. The main trail will be a one kilometer, fully accessible loop upon completion and will include hard packed gravel sections, boardwalk, bridges, and sidewalk.
The general public can take ownership of Chamberlains Park by donating twenty dollars per foot of trail or by dropping off recyclables marked for Chamberlains Park Action Committee at the Green Depot. CPAC is a registered non-profit organization.
