Cherry Valley Park will remain open to the public

Concerns public access to the Cherry Valley Lions Memorial Park and East Lake would be lost because the club has disbanded were alleviated today with the announcement a new Cherry Valley Park Association taking over its management.

The park – located on the banks of East Lake in Cherry Valley – has been owned and cared for by the Cherry Valley Lions Club for about 30 years. It is one of two public waterfront accesses to East Lake.

The newly-minted association is a not-for-profit corporation whose directors include Brad Brummell, Annette Brummell, Dave Francis and Dave McClennon.

“I am pleased that this new association will continue to operate the property as a park and free public boat launch,” said Mayor Robert Quaiff. “The Cherry Valley Lions Club provided a valuable and much-appreciated service to our community by maintaining the park for more than 30 years, and I couldn’t be happier to see this association created to continue that tradition.”

Park amenities and maintenance will not change with the transfer of management. Residents and visitors alike will still be welcome to enjoy the greenspace and the boat launch will remain free for interested users.

“We recognized that the park was too important to our community to see it fall into disrepair or sold off to a private owner,” said Mr. Brummell, who is secretary of the new association. “The park will receive the same quality of care and respect residents and tourists have come to expect over the past several decades.”

He notes the Cherry Valley Lions Memorial Park will remain to be an excellent location to host events such as family reunions or community gatherings. The Cherry Valley Park Association will also continue to maintain and rent picnic tables, a service previously offered by the Cherry Valley Lions Club.

To reserve space in the park or to rent the picnic tables, contact the Brummels at 613.476.7971 or email

    The article provides contact info.


    I didn’t know this was taking place so close to me. I have noticed lots of work the last couple weeks, you see I live three doors down and view the park as our park/lake view from our deck. If I had known this was taking place I would have definitely signed up… I’ll try to get in touch with organizers.. but please contact me if you know who I should call..
