Lower Trent Conservation seeking public input

Lower Trent Conservation is seeking public input on proposed improvements to its Proctor Park Conservation Area
located in Brighton.
The improvements, slated to begin this spring, include installation of a memorial grove walkway, planting of trees, upgrades to the picnic shelter and signage, naturalization of habitat and better vehicular traffic management.
The proposed improvements will address concerns regarding vehicular traffic and overall public safety while also helping to enhance the natural beauty of the park,” says David Beamer, Conservation Lands Manager.
“Proctor Park Conservation Area is a very special place, where nature comes first. We are excited for the opportunity to address the needs of our park visitors, the natural inhabitants of the park, and the community at large.”
Proctor Park Conservation Area was donated to Lower Trent Conservation in 1970 by heirs of the Proctor Estate.
Beyond its manicured lawns and open space, lies 37 hectares of natural wonder.
The property is open to the public year round at no charge. Visitors to Proctor Park Conservation Area enjoy a variety of activities including hiking, nature photography, fishing, and picnicking.
A copy of the proposed Improvement Plan for Proctor Park Conservation Area can be viewed at or in-person at the Lower Trent Conservation Administration Office, 714 Murray Street, Trenton.
Comments must be submitted in writing to the attention of David Beamer at or by mail to
Lower Trent Conservation, 714 Murray Street, R.R. 1, Trenton, ON K8V 5P4.
Deadline for public input is 11:59 pm on Friday, February 22, 2019.
