OUR NEWEST ADDITION — SPONSORED BY TRANS CANADA

The Ojibway Nature Trail

In 2016, the development of the 2-kilometer granular trail began throughout the westerly portion of Ojibway Park remains light, focusing on the preservation of natural aquatic and land ecosystems. 

The Economic Resource and Community Development Unit (under Garden River First Nation) has been focusing on nature trail enhancement in this section of the Park; the main priority ensures the trail serves as an 

educational experience for all Garden River First Nation (GRFN), its members, and to the general public in the future as it relates to the Ojibway culture, language, and traditions while protecting the sensitive area.

The 2km trail, is a loop off of the Trans Canada Trail that traverses through the Garden River First Nation. Trans Canada Trail stretches for nearly 27,000 kilometers throughout Canada and Garden River First Nation is proud to be part of that network.

Ojibway Park

Historically, Ojibway Park was given to the women and children of GRFN for traditional purposes that include harvesting medicinal plants and vegetation.

In 1962, the Park was opened as a family campground; the campground offers seasonal, monthly, weekly & nightly rates. Rates differentiate between beachfront/non-beachfront lots & general/seniors/GRFN Band member rates.

ERCD assumed management of the campground in 2013; at the end of the 2013 camping season, twenty-five (25) campers paid a winter storage fee, which guarantees their seasonal lot for the following season.

  • At the end of the 2017 operating season, this number improved to seventy-two (72).

  • Ojibway Park has undergone variety of renovations, sustainability projects, and a Master Plan and Feasibility study which identifies three areas of priorities over a fifteen (15) year period.
