A special thanks for all those who attended and helped us clean the park for a successful opening on Saturday. We had about 30 people show up at the main parking lot yesterday at 9am. Everybody grabbed bags and headed out quickly to clean the park, some headed for the trails, while others worked on the parking lots and entrance areas. It was a success, we hauled out over 50 bags of garbage and various other items. Some volunteers also cleaned along Northwest Arm drive.
We also had a crew in clearing the trees that fell onto the trails this winter, it sure was a winter of strong winds!
Please now that the park is open, help us keep it clean, this is a team effort by all who use the park. Please also keep an eye out for anyone dumping garbage in the park, this has been an ongoing problem, people bringing household and company waste into the park and leaving it for someone else to deal with. We do not have the funds or the staff to deal with this problem. If you see anyone bringing garbage into the park, please take note of the vehicle and License plate and report it to police, we need to stop our park from being a dumping ground.
Once again we’d like to say thanks to all who came out to help get Long Lake Provincial Park cleaned up and open for another wonderful season. Enjoy your spring and summer of hiking, walking and boating.
