Let’s hope Kortright park flies

Many Guelph residents have fond memories of the delightful times that used to be had at the Kortright Waterfowl Park. With lots of scenic trails and countless species of birds, it was a great place to take the kids.
But while it was once open to the public all year, since 2005 it has been closed. So it’s great news that the 47-hectare property is to be rehabilitated by its owner, the Grand River Conservation Authority. The GRCA has a list of things to deal with on the property, including boardwalks, bridges, a dam and damaged trees. For now, “No Trespassing” signs will be up, even though fences are coming down.
Eventually, though, the GRCA intends to seek input from city hall and from the public in developing a master plan for long-term use of the property. We echo the hopes of many, no doubt, that the site will reopen to the public as soon as possible, because it’s such a beautiful spot.
