Portions of the Homestead Trail in P.E.I. National Park will be closed for rehabilitation work starting this week.
Infrastructure work resumed on the trail in the Cavendish area of park, though several unaffected areas will remain open to visitors throughout the process.
Parks Canada is upgrading trails as part of a multi-year redevelopment project to improve infrastructure and enhance visitor experience.
There will be signage on site identifying the sections of the Homestead Trail that are under work. Closed sections will be marked in red on the map at the trailhead and construction signs will be posted on the trail.
The work is scheduled to be completed by mid-July.
Visitors to the park are advised to exercise caution, respect all on-site signage and follow instructions from on-site Parks Canada’s staff or contractors.
The work is part of a $3-billion investment over five years to support Parks Canada’s infrastructure work to heritage, tourism, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.
