The Town of Innisfil is partnering with the Lake Simcoe Regional Conservation Authority (LSRCA) to construct a Wetland at Circle Park in Gilford. The LSRCA is the lead on this project and will complete Geotechnical investigations, surveys, and site visits required for the design.

Where is Circle Park?

Circle Park is located in Gilford, approximately 200m from Lake Simcoe. Though this space is currently wet for approximately 90% of the year and has historically been an issue for residents surrounding the park - we're looking to find a silver lining to bring this space to it's full potential. By re-grading some of the wet areas, we'll be able to create a new wetland and save some recreational space for the community to enjoy!

    hi there, i live directly beside this park. i'm looking for information about what exactly is going to be done here - but there is none, other than it will become a "wetland". it is that already (LOL!); are there no details yet?? if it's to be constructed starting this winter, shouldn't there be some kind of details available? and will residents be consulted since we will be directly impacted by any changes? thank you.

    The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority(LSRCA) is funding and managing the wetland creation project at Circle Park. The LSRCA approached the Town in 2019 looking for Town owned land that could really benefit from environmental improvements like Wetlands.  Unfortunately as you mentioned Circle park is very wet, which made it ideal to be put forward for this wetland project. To date it was very challenging for the Town to make any improvements to the park because it was just so wet. However with the new Wetland, Circle park will gain some dry useable space.  The wetland  can become a great place to create a new home for many species and will increase overall biodiversity of the space! Once complete we can recommend to Council a project that would further enhance the park such as trails, a picnic gazebo, or viewing benches. At that time we will engage local residents!


    The LSRCA is currently working on the design for the wetland, and once completed the Town will load to this site. Please subscribe to the page to ensure you get the updates!
