Chicopee Tube Park receives recognition for Green Pathways in Canada's Parliamentary House of Commons!

The Green Pathways concept embodies Chicopee Tube Park's approach to sustainability, addressing the needs of visitors, the tourism industry, the environment, and host communities. Chicopee Tube Park is known as an anchor attraction within the Waterloo Region. This is defined as a tourism asset that prompts tourists and guests to travel 40 km or more to access the attraction.

We firmly believe in protecting the extraordinary environment we operate in. As we celebrate and honour the beauty of green space in an urban setting, the park wants to ensure that the generations that follow us have an opportunity to experience nature the way we do today. It is this sense of stewardship that gave rise to Chicopee Tube Park’s Green Pathways. This concept is the foundation for sustainable tourism that all resort operations need to focus and invest in for the future. The necessary action to support sustainability at Chicopee Tube Park started with the first phase goal of implementing water efficiency technology.

The first phase implemented water efficiency technology by constructing a snowmaking water holding pond in 2013. This pond facilitated the collection and recycling of rainwater, allowing the park to substantially reduce its dependance on the municipal supply by more than half (4,023,340 gallons).

 

Water is a vital resource for snowmaking purposes. These significant measurables we achieved within the first phase are stated below:

  • Since the pond construction was completed approximately 2,851,235 gallons of water were removed from the use of our initial Municipal benchmark water figure (4,023,340) necessary for snowmaking. The newly constructed Pond captured rain falls and was filled by the end of November 2013. 
     

  • Further, with the building of our pond, the excavated earth and soil from construction was used to build a reserve slope, which is key in controlling tubing speed and necessary for safety of tubers. Continuously, with the use of native soil to create this slope we also reduced our need for water and snow that previously was necessary to create a reserve slope each season.
     

  • The Park is capturing an additional 700,070 gallons of water during the months of December & January, during the times of winter rain events, and meltdowns. This water re-generates the holding pond and is made back into snow during the winter season when required. This process of water efficient technology is the implementation of water recycling.

The first phase was a great success!

 

Then the second phase was to begin. Plans were drawn up to expand the drainage system to capture even more storm water run-off using MTE engineering expertise in 2016. At this point the Park ran-out of time to implement drainage plans as designed, as other Park priorities put this proposed work on hold and postponed for a later date and time.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a great impact on the Ontario tourism industry, and in some cases led to a complete and total shutdown. CTP was no exception, and the realization that the need of a government support program was necessary to create a meaningful recovery for tourism investment. The Park made application to Fed Dev in July of 2021 and was granted financial assistance. The MTE engineering plans were taken off the shelf and work had started up again, we were then able to commence the construction of the second phase of our Green Pathways concept. 

The second phase is focused on capturing an additional 472,035 gallons of water from storm water run-off locations at Chicopee Tube Park. Some construction achievements were reached throughout the summer & fall of 2022 and are stated below:

  • The drainage system was expanded as intended in the MTE design. This expansion captures water off the roof areas of two of the existing park buildings using eavestroughs. These Eavestroughs were re-configured to re-direct water into the expanded drainage system. In past this storm water would have just drained out onto Parking Lot areas. 
     

  • Continuously, the drainage pipe was extended into slope areas with contours that normally would have directed water out onto the municipal road system. In the wintertime this run-off water and freeze cycles would have been dealt with by salting road surfaces. Now it is captured and directed through the holding pond and Snowmaking process.

Please note, to verify and obtain measurement outcomes, all the pumps and compressors have hour/use meters in place. This confirms water values and allows for an on-site method of tracking actual machine time worked.

The Park has a self-contained sewage treatment system that does not impact the existing municipal sewage system. This adds to the Park’s focus on being a completely sustainable operation. With the completion of the second phase extended the drainage network, capturing of more storm water run-off, the Park should reach the summary value shown on the Recap Table.
