For Pictou County to grow as a community there must be inspired focus on continued development of key resources. Trenton Park is one such resource which, through careful planning and implementation, will provide this region with tremendous opportunity. Creation of a superior year-round outdoor park facility is an important community asset that awaits development in Pictou County.
Members of the Hemlock Group have been working on the research and development of this project since 2013 with Trenton's Mayor, Council, and staff to achieve a restoration plan that focuses on establishing the key features necessary to the parks overall success. A focus on high quality product and materials has been paramount in developing a plan that will ensure a functional, enhanced build for an amazing user experience while ensuring sustainability for the municipality. Aside from developing the project plan, the Hemlock Group has dedicated their purpose to raising the funds required for the Town to implement the proposed changes.
To develop Trenton Park in its entirety is a massive undertaking and to realize its full potential as a dynamic, exciting and sustainable outdoor venue will require careful planning, implementation and considerable capital investment. Once complete this universally accessible, high quality parkland will serve as a signature destination offering a wide complement of activities, many of which are unavailable in the region. It will benefit employee retention for local businesses and institutions while serving as an attraction to newcomers, important features for those interested in living in a strong, active, and vibrant community!
