New Sign at Killbear Provincial Park

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

As you are driving towards Killbear Provincial Park this summer, watch for our new sign.

The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame has installed a new billboard sign with the aim of capturing the summer campers at Killbear Provincial Park. The new full colour 10’ by 10’ sign is located just past Fred Dubie Road about 15 kilometres down Highway 559 and features a larger-than-life size image of our sculpture of Bobby Orr’s famous goal. The sign was constructed by Andy Balicki of Balicki Signs and was installed in mid June.

About ten minutes North of Parry Sound, Killbear is one of Ontario’s busiest Provincial Parks during the summer season. The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame’s sign has been put in place to remind Bobby Orr fans of this outstanding tourist attraction honouring Bobby Orr’s career here in his hometown.

With the anticipation of a warm Summer ahead, it is hoped that a high volume of campers, travellers, and tourists from Killbear Park will make their way over to the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame!

Olympic Suit on display!

Visitors to the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame will now be able to view a recent piece of Bobby Orr Memorabilia.  The suit worn by Orr, as an Olympic flag bearer,  is now on display.  This beautiful ivory wool suit has his name embroidered inside the jacket and is accompanied by other items representing his participation as one of the Olympic Flag bearers during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic opening ceremonies.

It is worth adding the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame to your list of ‘what to do’ next time you are in the area!
