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.
Our meeting has been moved to the Spryfield Business Commission 339 Herring Cove Road, Suite 209
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday November18, 2015 6pm, at the Captian William Spry Ctr.
Please join us.
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.
At last nights Annual General Meeting of LLPPA ( Long Lake Provincial Park Assoc.) plans were unveiled for development of the Old Pumphouse area. The new park will include, parking, Kayak/Canoe launch, pit toilets, picnic area and stroller accessible walking trails.
Members of the Long Lake Provincial Park Assoc. attend an announcement at the Dam on Old Sambro rd on Friday June 26, 2015. A provincial grant of $40.000 will be used to develope a family park at the site of the old pumping station on Old Sambro Rd. We will be announcing a public meeting soon, to show our plans, and get public input for the park.
