Bonnechere River Park
From Algonquin to Bonnechere
Bonnechere River Provincial Park, a 1200 hectare waterway includes the shorelines of the Little Bonnechere from the Algonquin Provincial Park boundary to Cty Rd 58 near Round Lake. While archaeological research indicates visits to the area as far back as 3000 BC, its heyday was during the 1800s when the Little Bonnechere served as an important travel route for the square timber harvest.
Today this waterway links a number of natural areas which combine to create a wonderful area to explore by foot, auto or boat — especially flatwater canoe. Outdoor enthusiasts can travel along the 23km route which encompasses 19 forest communities. Stands of trees, wetlands and sandy shorelines provide important habitat for a wide variety of natural resources. The waterway also acts as a corridor for southern plant species such as the cardinal flower in the northern portion of its range, and the white oak which never left. It also provides protection for many cultural and natural resources.
