In 1989, the base closure was announced by the Canadian Government and Slemon Park Corporation evolved in 1991 as a private company dedicated to creating location solutions for regional, national and international business. The corporation’s mandate is to enhance economic development in Prince County and Prince Edward Island. The Corporation inherited 1500 acres of property and other assets from the former CFB Base Summerside, which closed in 1991. An effective collaboration between local, provincial and federal governments allowed the creation of Slemon Park Corporation.
Slemon Park is located 5 kilometres from the City of Summerside and 25 kilometres from the Confederation Bridge, which makes our location an excellent one for business re-location. Presently Slemon Park is home to some of the world’s finest companies in aviation, aerospace, diversified manufacturing, commercial and light industries. Slemon Park Corporation owns and operates the Summerside Airport, Slemon Park Hotel & Conference Centre, Anson’s Restaurant & Bar and a residential housing operation.
After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation recently, the Slemon Park Hotel & Conference Centre is ready to expand its business. With 88 – 3.5* Canada Select hotel rooms, our facility can now offer modern, affordable hotel rooms in the Summerside area to the training, business, conference and tourism markets.
