Long Sault Parkway
LONG SAULT PARKWAY CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
The Long Sault Parkway will be closed for drive through access on December 1, 2014. The entrance at the west end will be closed at the first causeway and the east entrance will be closed at the causeway just east of MacDonell Island. The road, up to those points will remain unmaintained for the winter months.
Recreational users are still welcome to use the Long Sault Parkway during the winter months. With the road closure, access will be by foot. Snowshoers, skiers, snowmobilers and others wishing to walk, photograph or otherwise enjoy the scenic beauty of the Long Sault Parkway in the winter are still free to do so at their own risk.
Hunters requiring access to hunting blinds under Ministry of Natural Resources jurisdiction, via Mille Roches Beach, until January 1, 2015, will use the road at their own risk.
Any other motorist taking their vehicles onto the parkway to the causeways will also do so at their own risk. The parkway will be signed at both entrances indicating that the road is closed and unmaintained for the winter.
The Long Sault Parkway was unique in it creation. It is a series of 11 islands that were created from high points of land left after the flooding of the St. Lawrence River during the construction of the Seaway in the 1950's. In fact, several villages once stood where the river now lies, a fascinating story captured at the Lost Villages display on Macdonell Island.
