Coronation Park was established in 1953 beside the Forty Mile Creek, which was one of the original reasons for the establishment of the settlement, now known as Grimsby. This park was the site of the first canning factory in Canada, and later, of the first basket factory. Begun by the Cross Family around 1879-80, the Carpenter Basket Factory was gutted by fire on April 11 1896.
