The Collingwood Trails Committee began working on a project in 2008 titled "Features on the Trail". This project aims to preserve the rich history that once existed along the trails and communicates this history to trail users. Encompassing seven previously installed historical interpretive panels, the Features on the Trails project today includes 19 features in total, found throughout the Collingwood Trails Network including Harbourview, Central, Millennium, and Shipyards Parks. The 2012 Collingwood Trails map highlights the names and locations of all these signs. Walk the trails and expand your knowledge.
The Nature League is dedicated to promoting an awareness and appreciation of our natural surroundings focusing on the Georgian Triangle. In 2012, the Nature League provided a generous donation to the Collingwood Trails Network in order to sponsor 3 new interpretive signs celebrating Collingwood's rich natural history. In partnership with the Collingwood Trails Committee, the decision was made to focus on the natural beauty of the waterfront area, and a whole new phase of the "Features on the Trails" program was born. Be sure to come see the unveiling of these latest three features courtesy of the Nature League.
More Features on the Trails are always in the works. If you are interested in sponsoring or supplying content for one of these features, please contact the Parks, Recreation & Culture Department at 705-444-2500.
