Thursday, July 28, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising park users of upcoming filming and construction activities that will show a little love for the heart-shaped pond at the Hemlock Ravine Park.
On Friday, July 29, a film crew will be on location all day at the heart-shaped pond in Hemlock Ravine Park. Please note that access to the park and trails will be maintained during filming, although the parking lot will be closed for the day to accommodate crew vehicles.
Beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 2 and continuing until approximately Sept. 13, construction work will be underway at the park to carry out some required maintenance on the heart-shaped pond. Contractors will be replacing the wall surrounding the pond, improving drainage, and removing organic debris from the bottom of the pond to improve clarity and overall water quality. Work is anticipated to take place each day from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The construction firm will be taking up most of the parking lot while work is underway, significantly reducing public parking access. Access to on-street parking and walking paths will be maintained throughout the project, however there may be periodic interruptions and re-routing of park-goers while construction takes place.
The municipality thanks residents in advance for their patience, and apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause.
