Cedar Ridge Creative Centre is a unique fine arts facility housed in a historic mansion, surrounded by lush gardens, offering an exciting roster of creative arts programs for artists of all ages. Built in 1912, as a family summer home, it is surrounded by 12 acres of scenic gardens and woods. The main building's library, living room, dining room and solarium are now Cedar Ridge Gallery. The remaining areas consist of studio space where classes are held in Fine Art, Folk Art, Pottery, Fibre Art and Woodcarving. Every year more than 1,000 adults enjoy the benefits of the low student/teacher ratio and the highly qualified instructors. Hundreds of children attend the camps and classes at Cedar Ridge, such as the Expressions Summer Art Camp, the Artstravaganza March Break Camp. Here they gain hands on experience in a variety of arts and crafts. Adjacent to the park are a variety of walking trails.
