There are two 18 hole miniature golf courses, riding academy, tennis courts, ball diamond, recreation hall, playgrounds, and a scenic lookout as well as daily programs put on by the park visitor program staff.

 

History

Kenosse and the surrounding Cannington Manor area can trace its roots to the 1880s when settlers began homesteading in the region southeast of the Moose Mountains. In 1882, Edward Pierce arrived from Britain to establish the Moose Mountain Trading Company and the village of Cannington Manor. By 1900, the village was abandoned because of poor growing conditions and being bypassed by the Canadian Pacific Railway.
