The Hanwell Recreation Park is located across Rte 640 from Eaglewood Drive. The kiosk has a map of the walking/skiing trails.
The park is on leased crown land and is available dawn to dusk for the enjoyment of residents. The parking lot has been recently enlarged on the pie-shaped portion of the property that is still to be developed. The entrance road will be improved and paved in 2016.
A Conceptual Master Plan for the park was produced by Glenn Group Landscape Architects in May 2011. The plan includes trails, tennis courts, sports fields, and a nature centre. This is a concept only and will be revised in the upcoming months. Council is investigating locating a community centre on the property as planned.
The Master Plan documents include:
Hanwell Community Development Association continues to maintain and improve the park for the benefit of the community. An interpretive nature experience is planned, with funding for signage and interpretive displays requested from the Environmental Trust Fund.
