Walk the Bell Gift

On February 19, 1926, W. J. Bell formally handed over to the Town of Sudbury the deeds to 110-acres of land that would be designated by council as Bell Park.

We pass by or walk through the park regularly, but its story is seldom told. Join the Kingsmount-Bell Park CAN for Walk the Bell Gift, Saturday, July 30, 10:00 am – noon.
