Bonnechere Book Tree

Take a Book, Read a Book, Leave a Book

In August 2014, the Friends of Bonnechere Parks and members of the Renfrew County Book Tree program celebrated the launch of the County’s sixth book tree.

Made from the trunk of a massive white pine, estimated to be about a century old, Bonnechere’s Book Tree stands at the entrance to the Davenport Centre, overlooking the beach on Round Lake.

The tree has several interesting components associated with it that make it truly emblematic of our connection with our natural and cultural heritage. It’s topped with an overturned Pointer Boat, which was built in 2002 by Merill Burchart

It also highlights the importance of reading at all ages, and is a fantastic way to stimulate creativity and inspire the next generation.

Across Renfrew County the Book Tree forest continues to grow and thrive while doing exactly what it was built to do — to provide barrier-free books in all communities.

Park visitors and campers are invited to come by, leave a book and take a book. Then, sit under the tall pines and share a story.
