The province of Nova Scotia, Canada, spent $23 million to build Upper Clements Park in 1989. The park was operated privately between 1994 and 1997 and then a nonprofit society took over. The seasonal facility has employed about 175 people.

Upper Clements Park has been an important tourism and employment generator for more than 30 years, but despite the board’s best efforts, the park was near bankruptcy. The Municipality of the County of Annapolis, Nova Scotia, has bought the local amusement park for $600,000 so it can be redeveloped as a private school.

Council held a special meeting on Tuesday, March 17, and approved the purchase of the park, which is located three miles west of Annapolis Royal.
