GRCA Hosts Discovery Day At Pinehurst Lake

Web posted on August 29, 2017

Discover one of the Grand River Conservation Authority's most beautiful parks Pinehurst Lake Park near Ayr, for Discovery Day on Sunday, Sept. 10.

You'll have a chance to plant flowers, meet the critters from GRCA nature centres, learn to geocache and bring home some nature crafts. Adventurous visitors won't want to miss the treasure hunt, free canoe rentals and the opportunity to catch a fish for the first time. Emergency service vehicles will also be on display.

"We look forward to opening up our park gates for this event each season," said Brad Straus, Park Superintendent. "It's amazing how many people still experience Pinehurst Lake for the first time at Discovery Day".

For those arriving with an appetite, a number of food trucks will be at the park.

While park admission and activities are free during Discovery Day, donations will be accepted by the Grand River Conservation Foundation. Any money collected will go directly toward trail improvements at the park.

The park is open between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Discovery Day. Pinehurst Lake is located south of Cambridge, at 468 Pinehurst Road, just east of Ayr.

Volunteers needed
The GRCA is also looking for volunteer anglers to help guests learn to fish by sharing their fishing wisdom, and campfire monitors who can help stoke the fire and hand out supplies to make campfire treats. Nature centre activity assistants are also needed to help visitors with nature-themed crafts. To learn more about these volunteer opportunities and how to apply, visit
