Soil remediation work finished

In 2016, the City closed off parts of Goldie Mill Park and ruins after sinkholes appeared. Soil testing in 2017 showed chemicals in the soil that could pose health risks, and the City took immediate action to address this and ensure public safety. All remediation work is now done.

Goldie Mill Park is owned by the Grand River Conservation Authority and managed by the City.
