 Park Replanting

  • White pines and yellow birches planted in large numbers among the downed trees in the areas that have been cut down in response to the devastation  of the spruce stand which has hit the park. These saplings should overtake the landscape as the cut trees go back to nature.
  • More planting is underway to restore the original Acadian Forest
  • This is a long-term project. The wide swaths of felled trees are planned fire-breaks. Many of them are showing new signs of life while others have yet to happen.
  • The Park is for day use only.  No overnight camping.

The eventual goal is to recreate an Acadian Forest environment, with only trees that grew naturally in Nova Scotia before mankind arrived.

 News from the wharf…..

Along the North Shore the villages of Knoydart, McArra’s Brook, Arisaig, Doctor’s Brook, Malignant Cove and West Maryvale are linked through the wharf at Arisaig Point and the Community Hall across the Sunrise Trail (Hwy 245) from Arisaig’s St Margaret’s Church.

The recently completed Lobster Interpretation Centre and Dockside Cafe (2013) as well as the Arisaig Provincial Day Park unite the communities through various activities.
