Guelph's Goldie Mill Park set to reopen Thursday after 2 years of repairs, remediation
Remediation work at park is now done and fencing is being removed, city says
Goldie Mill Park in Guelph is set to reopen Thursday.
The park, which is a popular location for weddings and photographers, has been partially closed for more than four years. The past two years has seen remediation and repair work completed. Sinkholes were discovered near the mill's ruins in 2016 and soil testing showed chemicals that could pose a risk to people's health.
The city says work at the park is now done and fencing is in the process of being removed. People using the park and trail are asked to avoid the area until that work is complete.
Crews are expected to plant new trees in the area later this year.
The city is now accepting bookings for the site again. Those bookings can begin on May 1 and go until Thanksgiving weekend.
The park is owned by the Grand River Conservation Authority but managed by the city.
