New Historic Mackenzie Highway Park & Tom Baldwin Arboretum

Last week I attended the grand opening of the new park and arboretum in Grimshaw. What a beautiful space, and as those trees grow and are added to, it's really going to be spectacular.

Congratulations to all those involved (and it was a long list read by Mayor Brian Allen) in seeing this park and the memorial to Tom Baldwin to fruition.

The memorial to Tom Baldwin is behind, waiting to be unveiled. Note the variety of trees in the arboretum. The park also features a cat train that was used on the Mackenzie Highway in the old days before pavement.
