Black Oak Heritage Park Fenced off for Safety
Access to Black Oak Heritage
Park is being fenced off until early 2018 to ensure the safety of residents and
the natural environment.
The park, including the
natural areas will be fenced with signage saying “closed to the public”
In December 2015, Black Oak
Heritage Park and Broadway Park, including the dog park, were closed due to
construction work on the new bridge plaza and perimeter road. These works
required the closure of Broadway Street which is the main access for these parks.
Since that time, improper usage of the natural park area
has resulted in damage to species and habitat, so temporary fencing will now be
in place until early 2018.
Other nearby natural areas
to explore include Ojibway Park and Tallgrass Prairie Heritage Park, while the
closest dog parks would be Optimist Park and Remington Park.
