There is very strong demand for park services in the Barrie area.
A good letter to the editor in the Barrie Examiner, Springwater Park Closure: MNR Miscalculates Community Response pdf only
Popular community opinion theorizes that the MNR has long-term plans to make the land surplus and sell it for development when the fuss over the park closure has died down. The MNR has stated it has “No plans to sell the park.” In my opinion, “No plans to sell” does not equal the statement, “We will not sell the Park.”
Time will tell.
There is very little doubt that the park is part of a very large housing development plan.
Action is required, now:
Please write to Premiere Kathleen Wynne and the MNR to express your opposition to the closure of Springwater Provincial Park. Less than two weeks remain before the park is closed on March 31, 2013.
