Parks Canada Greenwich Trail update

Greenwich Dunes Trail boardwalk construction continues to move along thanks to the dedicated Parks Canada staff working on this project. The terrestrial portion of the boardwalk is now complete, and assembly of the 700m section of aquatic boardwalk over Bowley Pond is all that remains. Work crews are moving materials and preparing to assemble the 700m of aquatic boardwalk float components as weather and ice conditions permit this spring.

Portions of the trail surface have sustained some damage due to the necessary heavy equipment used to transport materials during the boardwalk construction and this damage will be repaired in the spring before the trail re-opens.

In the meantime, for those wishing to walk in the Greenwich area, the main parking lot and beach access at Greenwich are still open and visitors are welcome to walk along the beach.

Updates will be posted on the Parks Canada website and shared with the community of St. Peters as they become available. For any questions, please call 902-672-6350.
