Special events such as the Veselka Ukrainian Festival and Canada Day Celebrations are held in the Park each year as well as soccer, baseball and slo-pitch tournaments. The Park is used extensively, playing host to various sporting and cultural activities. Green Acres Park is the home field for the Teulon Cardinals Baseball Team. Teulon has a very active slo-pitch league, and soccer and minor ball clubs.
The first Parks Board was established in 1983 and was composed of four councillors and two appointed citizens from the Village of Teulon and the Rural Municipality of Rockwood. The Board’s responsibility is the supervision, development and maintenance of Green Acres Park. The Park is jointly funded and utilized by the Town of Teulon and the R.M. of Rockwood. Operation and maintenance is a cooperative, ongoing effort.
