The United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) is pleased to announce that construction of the new Visitor Centre in the Larose Forest has now begun.
A project valued at $980,000, this visitor centre will allow for the rental of equipment, such as bicycles and snowshoes, and will provide a relaxation area for users as well as a source of drinking water.
The construction of the Visitor Centre represents an important partnership between the UCPR and the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario. FedDev Ontario has invested $350,000 through the Canadian Experiences Fund, while the UCPR is investing $630,000 for road upgrades, parking, and stormwater management improvements.
“The UCPR is extremely excited to open our new Visitor Centre for the coming fall season, following an already record-breaking year of trail usage in our majestic forest,” stated Pierre Leroux, Warden of the UCPR Council.
