The Town marks another important milestone in revitalizing the Woodchester Villa property this Thursday.
Mayor Rick Maloney and members of council will be on hand for the first walk through of the new storybook trail at Woodchester. The trail features the story, Penny and the Trail of Wonders by author, Courtney Murrell, illustrated by Kristin Wright. Meet the Bracebridge artists and learn more about the story.
Refreshments will be available while supplies last, including juice boxes and goldfish crackers for little adventurers.
Please RSVP to [email protected] if you plan to attend.
Woodchester is one of the oldest residences in Bracebridge, built in 1882. In 1978, the Town of Bracebridge designated Woodchester under the Ontario Heritage Act, and in 1981 the Ontario Heritage Trust secured a heritage easement on the building. The surrounding park land was gifted to the Town as a public park.
The proposed plans for Woodchester and the surrounding park include:
- Storybook trail commencing at the Timber Mart Lands and travelling through the Woodchester Park
- Art Park/Sculptural trail
- Increased trail network
- Select branch/tree removal for better views
- Viewing deck to Timber Mart Lands
- a Tea House into the Villa
