Circle Park Wetland Project
We are working with the Town of Innisfil to construct a new wetland feature that will enhance natural heritage features and improve drainage at Circle Park in Gilford. We are the project lead and will work with a consultant to complete all Geotechnical investigations, surveys, and site visits required for the design.
Where is Circle Park?
Circle Park is located in Gilford, approximately 200 metres from Lake Simcoe. Though this space is currently wet for approximately 90% of the year and has historically been an issue for residents surrounding the park - we're looking to find a silver lining to bring this space to its full potential. By re-grading some of the wet areas, we were able to create new wetland features and incorporate walking trails and lookouts for the community to enjoy! This wetland has already begun to attract wildlife of all kinds, from ducks to frogs to dragonflies. We've also created a turtle nesting site and an osprey platform, as they are known to be in the area and we hope to provide them with a safe place to nest.
Interested in getting involved?
The project will continue in the Fall with the first of many community engagement activities. We'll be hosting a tree planting event for the community to get involved! if you are interested in joining or have any questions, please reach out to us at restoration@LSRCA.on.ca.
