The gate is currently locked pending resolution of property issues and access rights. We will post developments as the situation evolves. The province and HRM are seeking alternative boat launch arrangements for the lake. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local representatives.
We are currently having discussions with all parties involved, and unfortunately, no one with authority (the landowner or owners, HRM or the Province) has provided any instructions to Friends of First Lake on what can or can’t be done on the properties involved. We ask for your patience as we continue seeking more information and clarity on what the next steps will be. In the meantime, we ask everyone to please respect the fact that burial remains may be located under or near parts of the trail. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the local MLA and Councillor and encourage them to resolve this matter. We will share further updates as soon as we know more. Thank you.
