Lowville Park Master Plan

The City of Burlington has approved a Master Plan review for Lowville Park.

The Lowville Park Master Plan provides a framework for future site enhancements specifically to improve its support of both organized and non-program activities throughout the park.

The master plan document is the result of an extensive public engagement process. Thank you to the Lowville Community and other park users on their efforts to fully participate throughout the entire process!

This initiative was identified in the council approved ‘Parks, Recreation and Cultural Assets Master Plan, December 2009’, a city wide study that established a long-term strategic vision for specific parks, recreation and cultural services initiatives.  The study covers the period 2009-2028.

TD Tree Day - Saturday September 13, 2014

TD Tree Day:

On Saturday September 13, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) will be hosting a TD Tree Day event at Lowville Park with over 50 volunteers comprised of TD employees, their families and community members partaking in native tree plantings.  The trees will be planted in the back area of Lowville Park (Buredaca Camp area) where naturalization has been started.  There will be approximately 300 trees planted; all trees are native species.  Planting will take place in the morning from 8am to 12pm. The nursery delivery truck and OFAH truck will be used to transport the plants and equipment to the planting area via the gravel pathway that leads from the parking lot to the back area of the park.

About OFAH and TD Bank - Friends of the Environment Foundation:

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) is a non-profit, non-government fish and wildlife conservation organization in Canada.  This organization is highly recognized for the work done to improve local streams, habitats and restore wildlife.  OFAH hosts many projects that involve tree and shrub planting as these are essential in the provision of clean water supply, which in turn feeds into our streams.

For 2014, TD Bank - Friends of the Environment Foundation has provided the OFAH with $100,000 in funding to support coldwater stream restoration on Duffins Creek, Humber River, Credit River and Bronte Creek.  Throughout September and October, the OFAH will be coordinating six different TD Tree Day events where TD employees, their families and community members will partake in native tree and shrub plantings along these waterways.

This September 13, 2014 planting in Lowville Park will be the 3rd annual Burlington TD Tree Day event.
