BURLINGTON, ON

 

Conservation Halton has made the difficult but necessary decision to close a number of their park operations.

Conservation Halton Administration’s Office will be closed to the public but will continue to operate through phone and email communications. We will also continue to receive deliveries and accept well water samples.

Mountsberg will be closed and Maple Town, as a result, will also be closed for the remainder of the season.

The walkway will be closed at Crawford lake.

Crawford Lake will be open, with trail access, but the Longhouse Village will be closed for the immediate future and Sweet Water Season will be closed for the remainder of the season.

Rattlesnake Point, Hilton Falls, Mount Nemo and Robert Edmondson will remain open, with trail access, but facilities, such as visitor centres, indoor washrooms, gift shops and food services, will be closed for the immediate future, so visitors are encouraged to plan ahead.

Glen Eden will be closed for the remainder of the season.

“We understand the importance of access to nature for community health and wellness, so we have worked to keep as many of the trails as possible open for public access,” said Hassaan Basit, Chief Administrative Officer. “With so many of our industry partners closing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we feel it is our responsibility to support these efforts.”

“Conservation Halton will look to reassess park operations on April 6.”
