Orono Crown Lands
The Orono Crown Lands were originally purchased by the Province as a tree nursery, to be operated by the Ministry of Natural Resources (and its predecessor Ministries). In addition to growing and shipping seedlings, the Ministry used the lands for forest research projects. It ceased to operate it as a farm in 1996. As a result of community consultation in 2001, the Ministry partnered with a grassroots organization – the Orono Crown Lands Trust – in the management of the property. Volunteers from the Orono area in Clarington assist the Ministry in the management and maintenance of the property. The concern is that the park be accessible to the public, and to that end, improved parking facilities, trails and access roads are available.
