Parks closed due to COVID-19
« on: March 13, 2020, 04:33:17 PM »
For the safety of our staff, visitors and healthcare workers in our community, Conservation Halton has made the difficult but necessary decision to close a number of our park operations. 
Mountsberg will be closed and Maple Town, as a result, will also be closed for the remainder of the season. 
Crawford Lake will be open, with trail access, but the Longhouse Village will be closed for the immediate future and Sweet Water will be closed for the remainder of the season. 
Rattlesnake Point, Hilton Falls, Mount Nemo and Robert Edmondson will remain open, with trail access, as we understand the importance of access to nature for community health and wellness. Please note that facilities, such as visitor centres, indoor washrooms, gift shops and food services, at these parks will be closed for the immediate future, so be sure to plan ahead. 
Glen Eden will be closed for the remainder of the season. (If you were registered for an upcoming lesson program, you will be contacted by Visitor Service to discuss compensation options.) 
Conservation Halton Administration Office will be closed to the public but will continue to operate through phone and email communications. We will receive deliveries and accept well water samples at this time. 
We understand that these closures and cancellations are disappointing but with so many of our industry partners closing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we want to support these efforts. We appreciate your understanding and will return to normal operations as soon as possible.
