NEWS & SIGHTINGS
LARGE TREE REMOVALS
In early 2018 some invasive and non-compatible trees will be removed in anticipation of a spring prescribed burn, and to make space for native tree and shrub restoration plantings. Tree Removal Public Notice
WILDLIFE IN WINTER
Whether you are skating at Grenadier Pond (in the marked area, when safe to do so) or just taking a walk, please remember that many wildlife species depend on High Park for a safe place to shelter and feed over the winter. Please keep your dog on leash, on trail and off the ice, for the safety of all!
