It’s a busy year for improvements in these parks as we create better experiences for you and all the critters that live here! Follow us on Facebook for the most current information.
- The entire site is closed until mid-June for ecological restoration and construction of new visitor facilities. Click here for more information.
- Cave: The cave is closed for construction of new stairs until mid-summer.
- Lighthouse area: We’re creating a new trail with great views to make your island experience even better. You may hear some construction noise if you visit this summer or fall.
- Trail to Flowerpots: We’re building a composting washroom this fall, so you may hear our crew at work.
Halfway Log Dump and Emmett Lake:
- There may be temporary delays on Emmett Lake Road this spring, and possible delays or full day closures this autumn, as we improve the road entrance experience.
- We’re building a composting washroom at the Halfway Log Dump shoreline this spring and summer, so you may hear some construction noise during your visit.
Cyprus Lake & Grotto:
- Campers can expect to hear construction noise during the day this summer and fall as we begin work on a comfort station. The most significant (and noisy) construction work will begin in October.
- We’re starting to replace washrooms throughout the campgrounds this fall, so you may hear periodic construction noise.
- Expect some minor detours and construction noise this fall as we improve the Head of Trails reception area.
- We’ll be working on the trails and viewing areas near the Grotto and Indian Head Cove this fall and winter. Expect temporary trail reroutes and construction activity.
Parks Canada’s Federal Infrastructure Investment Program
Announced in 2015, Parks Canada is investing $3 billion over five years to rehabilitate infrastructure assets across Canada. Almost $16 million will be spent at Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park on these improvements.
As one of the largest federal custodians, Parks Canada manages a variety of real property and infrastructure assets. In these two parks, the infrastructure portfolio is wide-ranging and includes assets such as roads, bridges, buildings, trails, campgrounds, water and wastewater treatment facilities, visitor centre and operations compounds.
This historic investment supports conservation while making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.
These projects are expected to continue until 2020.
