Gatineau Park Parkway Network Closed to Motorists for Winter Season
By:  Tom McCarthy   (2007/11/06)

Thank you to Parkway Closure volunteers!!

A huge thank-you to all of the clubs and individuals who pitched in
this summer and fall season to assist in the Gatineau Parkway road
closures. Your volunteer effort provided a place for the region's
cross-country ski athletes to train and improve as they pursue their
goals. This is the type of collaborative effort that makes
Ottawa-Gatineau a great ski community.

Thanks again - now let's all hope for snow to fill all those empty
roads with happy skiers!
