The trails construction is moving ahead with some of the trail at the back of Withrod lake nearly completed. Bridges are installed at points where a watercourse runs across the trail, and other places have culverts installed. Already we are seeing many people enjoying the new trails. But please be careful while in the park, as construction is still ongoing and there are heavy trucks and excavators moving around until the trails are finished.

Also as a reminder, dogs must be on leash and under control at all times in Long Lake Provincial Park. There are now some garbage cans on site, so please put all waste in it’s place. This will keep our park clean for all to enjoy.

Construction on the new trails is well under way, the parking lot is in and it’s full steam ahead. Anyone that are used to going into Long Lake Provincial Park at the end of Peter Saulnier Dr (formally Cowie Hill Drive) will notice lots of work going on there, trucks and machinery working on the new trails. These trails will open the park up to many residents who have never has access to the park before, with an easily accessible parking lot and easy walking trails. Stroller and bicycles and walkers will have enough room to use the trails together.

New parking lot construction started

A new parking lot and trail system project has begun this month on the east side of Long Lake Provincial Park. Long Lake Provincial Park Association along with The Department of Natural Resources have been working with Polycorp’s Peter Polly to get this project underway. We are very pleased to see construction begin on the Parking lot entrance, the project will see a parking lot and trail that will take you around Withrod lake, and also eventually connect to a new family park at the old pumphouse station off of Old Sambro Road.LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (8)WEB LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (10)WEB LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (14)WEB LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (21)WEB LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (5)WEB LongLakeNewParkingLotNov2015 (6)WEB

Stop breaking glass

Please stop breaking glass in your park. Here is just a sampling of the glass beer bottles littering some of the beach areas along the lakeshore off Old Sambro Rd. This is dangerious for children and others.
