How lucky am I to live in such a beautiful country with ten Provinces and three Territories that extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and Northward into the Arctic Ocean.  In Canada, everyone can find the lifestyle they desire. You like the city, there are all types and sizes. You like the country side, there are so many gorgeous places to live, it’s wonderful. You want a quiet suburb but still close to the city center, no problem. You want to be alone and have a house with no-one in a 5 km surroundings, no problem. It’s truly a beautiful country.

I am very fortunate to live in the beautiful city of Sudbury, Ontario. It is the largest city by population in Northern Ontario with a population of 161,531 and it is the largest city by land in Ontario. The population of Greater Sudbury either reside in the heart of the city or among many other smaller communities scattered around our 300 lakes and among hills of rocks blackened by the city’s mining history.

One of my favourite places in Sudbury is the Jim Gordon Boardwalk at Bell Park. It is named after Jim Gordon who is one of the three most influential and innovative mayors in Canada  according to the Canadian edition of  Reader’s Digest. The boardwalk was named after him because of his incredible work and dedication to the city of Sudbury. It’s a destination area which can be used for various activities such as hiking, biking and swimming. The Boardwalk mesures 2 kilometres long and follows the shore of Ramsey Lake. It runs all the way from moonlight beach in Minnow Lake and goes all the way up to the Laurentian area.

Here I am on the beautiful boardwalk looking out onto Ramsey Lake!

Located near the shores of Ramsey Lake at Bell Park, we have the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre. The capacity of the amphitheatre is 1,961 people. It features fixed seating for 561 people and grass seating for 1,400. A new sound and lighting system, covered stage and change rooms are available to take your event from functional to fantastic. The perfect place for your next special event, fundraiser or celebration.
