Parks Canada Announcement

Dear valued Parks Canada stakeholder,

Parks Canada wishes to advise you of several infrastructure projects happening in the Greenwich area in PEI National Park this fall. These projects are part of Parks Canada unprecedented $3 billion dollar investment over 5 years to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas.

On October 3, work will begin to replace the boardwalk on the Greenwich Dunes trail. This structure will be replaced as it has reached the end of its lifespan. Parks Canada is taking measures to ensure that rare and sensitive plant species and environmental features are protected while this work is taking place. Please note that the Havre Saint Pierre, Tlaqatik and Greenwich Dunes trails and the trails parking lot will be closed while this work is underway.

Parks Canada will continue its project to better delineate its boundary lines in Greenwich, PEI National Park. Boundaries will be delineated through the clearing of trees and brush around boundary lines, as well as the placement of signage and fencing as appropriate. Parks Canada makes every effort to minimize disruptions caused by the infrastructure work and, as such, is pleased to provide these updates. We thank local residents and visitors for their patience and support while this important work is happening. For more information on these projects, please contact Greg Shaw, Project Manager at 902-672-6377 or greg.shaw@pc.gc.ca.

Best regards, Karen Jans, Field Unit Superintendent – Parks Canada, PEI
