Trail closure in Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary

Trail expected to open Sunday

The Dr. George Trail in the Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary will be closed to public on Friday and Saturday.

The reason behind the closure is repaving during the construction season.

Repaving is taking place at the entrance to Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary from Kerry Wood Nature Centre to the Bird Blind Viewing Deck and towards the Wishart Trailhead.

The Dr. George Trail is expected to re-open on Sunday.

The Kerry Wood Nature Centre and nearby playgrounds will remain open during this time.
