Programs & Activities

The Town of Conception Bay South is a family-oriented municipality that strives to provide a wide range of exceptional community programs and activities for residents of all ages. 

Walking for Wellness is a free program that allows older adults to explore the trails of Conception Bay South, guided by a group leader. Walks occur on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. (weather/trail conditions permitting).

Our winter program consists of six guided hikes on various trails, including four snowshoe hikes. The snowshoe hikes require pre-registration as spaces are limited due to available equipment. 

For more information or to pre-register for a snowshoe walk, please call 834-6500 ext. 601 or e-mail recreation@conceptionbaysouth.ca.

Conception Bay South is home to two, beautiful community gardens.

Gateway Garden is located on the grounds near the Conception Bay South Arena on Graham Mifflen Drive. It features a rustic fence, as well as an outdoor classroom and stage area.

Manuels River Garden is located on the grounds of the Manuels River Interpretation Centre, at 7 Conception Bay Highway. This garden features a rustic greenhouse, communal-raised beds and ground-level beds, various vegetable and flower gardens, berry bushes, and a garden library. This site was a collaborative project by the CBS Community Garden, Manuels River, and Rotary Avalon Northeast. 

These community gardens give residents the opportunity to learn about growing food and food sustainability. They are a place for the community to come together, enjoy the benefits of gardening, and to take part in special events.

To stay up-to-date on future plans for community gardening, or to become involved, follow the CBS Community Garden on Facebook or Instagram, and sign up for their e-mail updates.
