Think of Slemon Park as a small town with everything a person, a family, an employer, or an employee needs. It’s a place to live; it’s a place to work; it’s a place to play, to dine, to exercise, to relax.
Not every aerospace business park has its own airport—we do: the Summerside Airport. This private airport is a dedicated asset for the business community. It gives companies who locate in Slemon Park a tremendous advantage. Add to the onsite airport, the provincial tax-free program for aerospace businesses, and you have an internationally competitive aerospace business location.
Slemon Park is also Atlantic Canada’s foremost scenario-based training destination. Besides being the home of Holland College's The Atlantic Police Academy, the many staging areas for scenario-based training (including bunkers, hangars, runways, green space, and classrooms) are ideal for all sorts of courses, both short and long-term. We have a proven record of designing facilities for the specific needs of such organizations as the Canada Border Services Agency, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Corrections Canada, the Department of National Defense, and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. We can fulfill your exact training needs – just ask us.
But Slemon Park is much more than just an aerospace business park and training destination. It’s been a home to successful movie and TV productions, air shows, and auto-racing events, and it was a host location for PEI’s 2009 Canada Games. The airport has been used by such celebrities as Elton John, Jerry Seinfeld, and NHL hockey teams. And it’s also a long-time home for many businesses and families who enjoy the convenience of the 253-unit rental home community and low lease rates.
Slemon Park’s onsite amenities make it a full business and residential package. The Plex Arena, Anson’s Restaurant & Bar, a Canada Post outlet, the Slemon Park Hotel and Conference Centre, the Slemon Park Plaza, and the adjacent Confederation Trail create a community. Join us in this thriving Summerside neighbourhood.
