The Counties, Ontario – The United Counties of SDG, in association with the Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST), held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new parking lot at the Summerstown Forest. This event was held in conjunction with the Official Opening Day Activities at the trails organized by FOTST.
SDG continues to take an active role in promoting and enhancing recreational activities at the Summerstown Forest. Recent initiatives include hazardous tree assessment and removal, new and improved signage and the installation of the new parking lot in 2017. SDG, in partnership with the FOTST, relocated and expanded the parking lot which is now located adjacent to County Road 27; improving access, visibility, and safety. The parking lot construction was completed using recycled material; which resulted in a significant cost savings of approximately $17,000.
