Parks and Trails Plan

We are excited to announce a new initiative to renew and enhance the parks and trails in Huron-Kinloss, and we need your help to make it a success!

Our parks and trails are important spaces where families, friends, and neighbours come together to enjoy the outdoors, play sports, walk their dogs, explore nature, and relax. We want to make these parks even better by creating a Park and Trails Plan, and your input is crucial.

What is the Parks and Trails Plan?

This plan will be our roadmap to improve and enhance the parks in Huron-Kinloss. We aim to create spaces that meet the needs and desires of our community today and in the future. 

Huron-Kinloss and pl.ural aim to:

  • Improve Accessibility: Ensure our parks and trails are open and welcoming to all.
  • Enhance Playability: Create engaging and fun environments for users of all ages.
  • Meet the Needs of All Demographics: Develop spaces that cater to everyone in our community.
  • Revitalize Parks, Trails, and Amenities: Explore options to add new amenities such as pickleball courts, dog parks, and expanded trails

What parks and trails are included in this plan?

Did you know the Township of Huron-Kinloss maintains 18 parks and 8 trails? 

In these parks, we maintain 6 Tennis/Pickleball Courts plus additional pickleball courts in the Point Clark Community Centre parking lot; 5 basketball courts, 1 splash pad; 4 baseball diamonds, 1 soccer field complex; 14 playground structures, 1 skateboard park and 1 dog park. 

Parks and trails are reviewed and updated through the capital planning process on a 10 year cycle. The Parks and Trails Plan is an action from the 2022 Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The plan will take a closer look at the current state of our parks and trails (ie. accessibility, playability, amenities, size and population base) and make recommendations to ensure they are meeting the needs of our residents.

The plan will also determine if any new amenities are required, including;

  • a dog park in Lucknow and/or Ripley,
  • designated pickleball courts; and,
  • new or expanded trails throughout the Township.
