Park Closing for the Winter

Long Lake Park Association would like to thank all our visitors for a wonderful year of park use. We have encountered many wonderful park users during the spring, summer and fall and we hope you all enjoyed your walks, runs hikes and bike rides as well as our new kayak/canoe launch over the summer.

With winter approaching it’s time for the park to close for the winter, soon we will be closing the gates to the parking lots and getting our closed for the season signs posted.

Please be advised there will be no winter maintenance of park trails or entrances to the parking lots.

We will update you as spring approaches and the park will reopen when conditions permit safe travels in the park.

your truly

LLPPA Board

 

 

 

 

 

Fall hike at the park

Went for a nice hike this morning, it was muggy but the water on the lake was like glass, and as a bonus we met a fairly curious Garter Snake who seemed to like getting his picture taken.

Join us for a Paddle

Kayak/Canoe Roundup

Come on out to join us on the Lake this

Date: Saturday, September 16th,

Time: from 1 pm to 4 pm.

At the new parking lot off Old Sambro Road, we will be entering at the new Canoe/Kayak Launch area.

As part of our Spryfield Harvest Festival, we are hosting a Kayak/Canoe Roundup this year. Whether you canoe or kayak, come join us. This will be the first year of our Roundup, so we hope to continue to promote it and build it up over the years to come, to see how many paddlers we can get out on the lake with us.

Join us for an afternoon of paddling. Meet fellow paddlers from around HRM and explore the lake and shoreline of our beautiful Long Lake.

Please Note: Due to the size of the parking area, we are asking participants to unload their kayak or canoe, then park their vehicle on a side street near by, or in the No Frills parking lot, so we can accommodate everyone.

Hope to see you!!
