Aanii Park guests! We want to wish you all a great season at Point Grondine Park this year. As such, we would also like to update you on all the enhancements the park is undergoing, and exciting new ventures to come.
Day Use for the park will be postponed and will remain closed until the 9th of June 2023. Construction is underway on the new campground road, sites and roofed accommodations. The construction will affect day use as we are moving the trailhead and realigning sections of Mervs Landing including Amik Ziibii Interpretive and access trail. We are expecting to have the new trailhead open by mid-June and the main campground road including 13 campground sites and Off Grid Cabin completed for the Civic Holiday Weekend in August.
Backcountry – Hiking
We do ask that you submit your trip plan to our ParkTeam prior to your arrival. All hikers will be asked to use the west entrance of Mervs Landing to begin their trip. The East section of trail from the trailhead to Turkes Road will remain closed until further notice. Our Park team will be constructing a new east trail access in the coming weeks. We will have temporary maps available that reflect the detours and new access points.
Backcountry – Canoeing
Due to the road construction and customer safety, we will be offering mandatory shuttle service to the canoe access drop in with all Monday to Friday departures. Canoes that are rented with Killarney outfitters will need to be communicated with our office to Coordinate drop off. Shuttle service fees will be waived this year due to the ongoing enhancements. Also, we ask that you check-in and check-out when you are visiting the park, this can be done texting the guardian mobile phone at 705-790-5431.
Our Guardian Team is currently conducting maintenance on all backcountry hiking and canoe routes. We ask paddlers to exercise caution at Wematagoosh Falls as the spring run-off has caused the river to move rapidly.
We thank you for your patience as we begin this next phase of our Park Development and as with every season, Miigwech for choosing the Point Grondine Park. Be safe and enjoy all that this jewel has to offer.
