Guest Blogger - One of the province’s most treasured places makes its return this year.

The Cheltenham Badlands are set to reopen this year, thanks to a $115,00 federal grant given by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev).

The area was closed off to the public a few years ago due to vandalism and erosion concerns. The government has since initiated a project aimed towards its revitalization and repair.

“The work will connect the existing Bruce Trail to the new parking lot being constructed by the Region of Peel, rehabilitate existing recreational trails, upgrade protective fencing, create an accessible viewing area near the Badlands feature and provide on-site interpretation,” reports Caledon Enterprise.

Once the parking facilities, viewing area and Bruce Trail are completed, that section of the Badlands will reopen immediately. The rest of the site will be reopened in phases over the next few years, after the completion of the Master Plan for the area.

“The development of the Master Plan for the site is ongoing,” said Kimberley Murphy, an Ontario Heritage Trust member. “The plan will outline the long-term vision for the site as well as identifying major projects, new trails and other potential site enhancements to be implemented in phases.”

There is now $230,000 dedicated to the project, which includes the grant provided by FedDev.
