Picture a Park: Planta Park

May 21, 2015

In the Stephenson Point neighbourhood lies a 7 hectare (17 acres) wooded park for residents to enjoy a short stroll through nature called Planta Park.


Planta Park features a trail system that can be accessed from a number of spots (Ellis Place, Stevens Point Road, Planta Rd and Budehaven Drive) in the neighbourhood. The trails are relatively flat and the main trail features a short boardwalk.

Some plants which can be found in this public open space are fir, arbutus, oak, cedar, maple and vine maple trees. It also provides homes for many wildlife including deer and woodpeckers. The Stephenson Point Neighbourhood Association takes pride in Planta Park and volunteers from the neighbourhood work to keep invasive plants at bay.
