INFO WORK: WESTERN BROOK POND TRAIL TO OPEN MAY 26
ROCKY HARBOUR, NL, May 16, 2019 – Parks Canada has been conducting trail and wharf reconstruction at Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne National Park over the course of the winter months. Construction interruptions, caused by persistent ice conditions in Western Brook Pond, resulted in a short delay in opening of the trail and site by one week. The trail will now open to visitors on May 26, 2019 and will once again remain open year-round.
The construction of the trail will be completed by May 26 at which time it will be reopen to the public. Starting this summer and continuing over the coming years, Parks Canada will continue to restore vegetation along the trail and install visitor experience elements such as interpretive features, rest areas and viewpoints to support the visitor experience needs for a broad range of our visitors. This work will not have an impact on the use of the trail.
The goal of the multi-year project is to complete a trail that is safe, sustainable and accessible while protecting the ecology and offering rewarding experiences to visitors. Changes to the trail will create opportunities to address the needs and interests of a broader range of park users including cyclists and those who may have limited mobility. More details on this important project can be found in the latest update posted on the park’s website at: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/nl/grosmorne/visit/infra/wbp.
This project is part of Parks Canada’s unprecedented $3 billion investment over 5 years to support infrastructure improvements to heritage, visitor, waterway, and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.
Parks Canada will issue further public advisories as the work progresses. For up-to-date information on notices, the public can follow us @ParksCanadaNL and contact us at 709-458-2417 or email@example.com.
