Trenton Park is reopening to the public effective today! (May 01, 2020)
This is in response to the announcement from the Premier Stephen McNeil and Dr. Robert Strang, chief medical officer of health on the easing of some public health restrictions around COVID-19. Please note that existing public health directives around social distancing and social gatherings remain in place. People must keep two metres apart and not gather in groups of more than five.
What do these initial steps mean for Trenton Park?
PARK & TRAILS - Trenton Park & all Town trails are reopening to the public. You must continue to respect social distancing protocols as stated above. We would also like to remind you that ALL dogs are required to be on a leash while visiting Trenton Park and walking in all areas of the Town outside of your private property.
PLAYGROUND - The playground will continue to be CLOSED to the public until further notice.
FISHING - Sportfishing is permitted from shore, but fishing derbies are not allowed. Please be aware that while sportfishing is permitted at Trenton Park, the ponds are not regularly stocked, and you must follow Nova Scotia regulations which can be found in the Nova Scotia Anglers' Handbook and 2019 Summary of Regulations. Anyone over the age of 16 must have a valid fishing license. https://novascotia.ca/f…/documents/Anglers-Handbook-2020.pdf
"We know that getting outdoors for recreation is important for people's physical and mental health," said Premier McNeil." That's why we are easing some restrictions, while still keeping the majority of our public health directives in place to continue fighting the virus. But I need to be clear: if we see an increase in positive cases or people not continuing to adhere to all the public health measures, the restrictions will return."
