Park Facilities & Accessibility Features

Access Route

Most of the access routes/pathways within the park are accessible. The gradients are typically 1 - 2 degrees. The pathway widths do not meet code. The access routes in and around the day use area are asphalt. While they are usable it should be noted that there are many bumps and rough areas due to roots and frost heaves. From the Parking Lot to the Main Washroom Building - The surface is asphalt with a gentle 1 degree slope. This is an older access route and has developed some heaving and cracks due to climate. From Day Use shelter to Boat Launch - This access route is packed gravel with a mostly a gentle running slope of 1 degree. However at the end of the route where it joins the boat launch access the slope exceeds 5 degrees which is very difficult when using a mobility device. Download Full Accessibility Audit
