It's hidden by a lot of trees and if it hadn't been for another couple telling us why it was there we'd never have known. What we were told is the person who designed the Canadian Toonie is from Campbellford. Sure would be nice to see a plaque or something for the person!

On the way to another destination so we dropped by this place and the Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge. Nice and quiet area! Really enjoyed the time! We had been to Sudbury to see the Big Nickel before when we went to the Science North. This one is really the only attraction in the area along with the Bridge. Not too many people were there when we went, which is great!

After visiting the park last Saturday along with another family, we decided to check out the Toonie monument. It is located at the Old Mill Park along the majestic Trent-Severn Waterway as its backdrop, so the view is beautiful and the park has lots of picnic benches too.

Free parking is available as well. We walked around and saw the huge toonie which looked beautiful. The city erected a Tonnie that is 27’ tall and 18’ in diameter in recognition of Campbellford artist Brent Townsend who designed the polar bear that was used on the coin.

It is a definite must see if you are around the area. We just stayed for a while and then drove off to explore the area.

We stopped here on our way to camping at Ferris Provincial Park. The toonie is a bit hidden by trees and therefore easy to drive past. It is located right my he tourist information building. We parking in that lot but there is also parking along the street. We had also quick picnic in the park. It was beautiful along the river. There are clean washrooms available here as well.

We came here as we rented a cottage close-by. The monument is erected in a piece of grass land - excellent for photo taking. I would say worth visit if you are around.
