Out­door class­room

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Special - - Lancaster -

Lo­cated on County Road 2, in the Town­ship of South Glen­garry, Char­lot­ten­burgh Park en­com­passes a to­tal of 234.7 acres of green space.

The park fea­tures a di­verse en­vi­ron­ment with many types of ecosys­tems in­clud­ing white pine and spruce plan­ta­tions, a mixed hard­wood for­est, Class 2 Provin­cially Sig­nif­i­cant wet­lands, Lake St. Fran­cis and its trib­u­taries, mead­ows and a For­est Stew­ard­ship Coun­cil (FSC) man­aged for­est area.

This site is quickly de­vel­op­ing into a large out­door class­room for school chil­dren as well as a re­lax­ing “meet­ing room” or com­pany “pic­nic area” for lo­cal busi­nesses and a “play­ground” for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike that is un­prece­dented in all of East­ern On­tario.

A re­cent ad­di­tion is the lux­ury camp­ing cabin. AS AD­VER­TISED: The Op­por­tu­nity Knox Bar­gain Cen­tre in Lan­caster is over­seen by the United Church par­ish.
