It was great to visit Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site this week and see all the wonderful upgrades.
Keji means a lot to many people. Personally, it’s where I proposed to my wife, Anne, and a place where we spent time with our young family. I know it was pretty controversial when the park closed after the 2019 camping season, but you all will be happy with the over 10 million dollar investment. Much of the park had been unchanged since its opening in 1967. For those of us who use the park, visiting the bathroom was always a little dark and grungy.
I commend the park staff who worked hard to maintain and clean the facilities, but they were well beyond their useful lives. It was great to visit with park with superintendent Jonathan Shepard and Project Lead Andy, to see things visitors might not see at this time, but to chronicle a sneak peek of the changes for folks.
The park is expected to reopen during the May long weekend and I can’t wait to book a week there this summer!
