Parks & Trails
The City of Little Canada has several beautiful parks for residents to enjoy. These parks provide recreational opportunities for all. We encourage optimum use of these public facilities, including county parks, city parks, and the Water Works right-of-way. Our goal is to preserve and enhance the city's natural, scenic, and historic resources.
Park Shelter Reservations
Little Canada has three shelters available for family or company picnics. Although a permit is not required to use these facilities, people who obtain permits take precedence on use of the shelters.
- Spooner Park's Upper Shelter
- Spooner Park's Lower Shelter
- Pioneer Park's Shelter
More information can be found on our Park Shelter Rental page.
