Friends of Short Hills Park

Friends of Short Hills Park is a community-based organization dedicated to preserving the cultural and natural integrity of Short Hills Provincial Park through liaison with Ontario Parks, volunteer work, public education and fund raising activities.

Trail Update The park is still suffering the consequences of the late spring rain. Please stay off any trails that are marked closed until the summer staff can repair bridges and do any trail re-routes necessary. The center of the park is the worst hit; trails 1 and 2 are the least damaged.
