​​Safety Rules and Guidelines

​The following rules and guidelines have been implemented for your safety​. Please do your​ part so we can do ours:

  • ​Given the lack of facilities, plan a visit that is short in duration – remember, washrooms remain closed.
  • Park in dedicated areas only - please only park if you can fin​d an appropriate spot that does not block access points, gates or other vehicles. If no parking spots are available, please go to another greenspace. 
  • Parking is complimentary while amenities are limited.
  • Visit with memb​ers of your household only. Avoid gatherings.
  • While on the trails, maintain physical distancing of 2m/6ft from others. 
  • Stay on trail unless you need to briefly step off to ensure physic​​al distancing.
  • Take home all litter, including pet waste. 
  • Dogs-on-leash is always the rule at all our Conservation Areas.
  • Make a tick check​ part of your routine and don’t forget to check your pets too.​
