Forest health restoration

A forest health restoration project is underway in Princess Park. It includes new fencing, hazard tree removal, installation of over 1,000 plants, trail improvements, and new signs.

We are asking all park users to keep out of the off-trail portions of forested area, stay on designated trails, and keep dogs on leashes while enjoying the trails within the newly planted areas. This will help prevent further erosion and give the recently planted shrubs a better chance to survive.

Volunteers and Parks staff are working in the southeastern portion of the park, where there is significant erosion and forest degradation from off-trail use.

The existing network of trails has been consolidated to offer safer and more sustainable options for those visiting the natural areas in Princess Park.
