With a host of display gardens and naturalized areas, a native plant nursery, children’s programs, garden market, skill-building workshops and hands-on displays, the park has everything you need to be a good steward of the land in your care. This unique, award-winning centre is an ecological adventure for the whole family, staffed from May through October.

Exciting changes at GreenUP Ecology Park in 2017

Final Ecology Park Master Plan

2017 is GreenUP’s 25th year! For each of those 25 years, GreenUP has been offering opportunities for learning, skill-building, and environmental action in our community.

For children growing up in this region, the GreenUP Ecology Park has been a site of wonder, learning, and environmental immersion.

In 2017, we hope to enhance facilities at GreenUP Ecology Park, to strengthen our capacity to offer high quality outdoor programming, maximize the impact this unique facility can have on the health of children, and increase accessibility to enable a greater number of children to use the park.

You help us reach our goal, you can donate now securely online.

You can also donate to the NEST Fund and receive an animal puppet – a great gift that gives twice!

Plans for improvement at Ecology Park include improving the teaching shelter, replacing the hand washing station, and adding a drinking water station. They also include the installation of additional lighting and a fully accessible washroom.

As we look toward the future, community support remains as vital as ever to strengthen our capacity and educate our children in places like GreenUP Ecology Park. We are excited to continue strengthening our facilities to increase GreenUP’s capacity to educate the next generation of environmental stewards.
