Circle Park Wetland Project
We partnered with the Town of Innisfil to construct a new wetland feature to enhance the natural heritage system and improve drainage at Circle Park in Gilford. To bring the park back to its full potential, we worked with a consultant to design a space incorporating wetlands to enhance the natural heritage area and added walking trails to connect the residents to nature.
Where is Circle Park?
Circle Park is located in Gilford, approximately 200 metres from Lake Simcoe. This space was wet for approximately 90% of the year and has historically been an issue for residents surrounding the park. By re-grading some of the wet areas, we were able to create new wetland features, tree and shrub plantings, other habitat structures and incorporate walking trails 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.
