WINTER WEATHER NOTICE

Conservation area visitors are reminded to take precaution when attending natural areas and trails, especially during the fall/winter season when inclement weather and conditions may arise. In the event of inclement weather, NPCA conservation areas remain open, but activities and services may be limited and facilities such as the Centre for Conservation at Ball’s Falls may be closed. Please be mindful of NPCA staff who work to ensure primary parking areas are cleared and plowed when visiting, and note that all trails are natural, and not maintained for winter recreation. Please check NPCA conservation area pages on Facebook for closure postings, as these are updated regularly.


Gainsborough Conservation Area is a rugged park with no formal trails or activities. It conserves a forest block with sloughs (‘wet pockets’), a diversity of plants and limited disturbances, making it an ideal refuge. The public is welcomed to this property to enjoy the tranquil and peaceful woodlot. Parking is available next to the NPCA workshop located on the property.
