Location

Knox Presbyterian Church Sixteen, Lions Valley

1150 Dundas Street West

Oakville, ON

Discover the history of the place known today as Lions Valley Park!

Since the first Indigenous people lived on this land, the place know today as Lions Valley Park has been an important location because it was where the river could be crossed. It was also the site of the thriving community of Proudfoot’s Hollow in the 1800s … a village that no longer exists. Join us for a day of discovery and celebration as we explore The Crossing.

The activities of the day will provide the opportunity for young and old to discover this important heritage destination. Discover the Indigenous perspective of creation on the Moccasin Trail; find out about Proudfoot’s Hollow - and why it no longer exists; learn about the first settlers who are buried in the cemetery and take a tour of Knox Sixteen heritage church; engage in activities where you will experience the games that children played before computers; or go on a conservation hike through the forest. With such a range of activities it is sure to be a day of fun for the whole family!

*Limited parking on-site. Please consider taking public transit.
