Trees for Nipissing and Eagle Tree Support joined forces to beautify and protect the place.
Trees Nipissing provided 23 crimson pines, 5 silver maples and a few crimson oaks, all planted by Eagle Tree Support personnel.
“This spot is the opportunity site for the city’s foreseeable future doggy park. The trees had been planted in a way to variety a wind barrier for consumers of the park,” reported Peggy Walsh Craig, chairwoman of Trees for Nipissing.
The pines, donated by the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority several yrs in the past, ended up planted in the Trees for Nipissing Starter Nursery on North Bay conservation land and pruned by Trees for Nipissing.
The pines were being planted to block the wind together Freeway 11 for park people.
“The other trees planted at the park are to deliver some shade.”
Walsh Craig explained the trees had been transplanted from the Hammond Road nursery.
“We were being hoping to have moved them in the final two several years, but because of to Covid we weren’t in a position to do so. After this yr they would have been too significant to transfer.”
This would be the 2nd pet park in town boundaries. The initially off-leash doggy park is positioned off Champlain Park Road. The place is separated, with a single area for compact pet dogs and the 2nd portion for bigger breed canine.
The announcement of one more pet park was unveiled in the city’s 20-year Parks Master Program, adopted last yr by council.
Gord Younger, the city’s interaction officer stated, there has been no implementation date set for the proposed pet dog park at Thomson Park.
“These initiatives are based on out there capital and operational budgets, as well as council priorities,” Young reported.
