Roxborough Greenbelt Trail

The Kingsmount/Bell Park CAN teamed up with CLS/Friends of Roxborough to spread wood chips on the trail between Roxborough and the pedestrian bridge at Wellington. The wood chips will help to more clearly mark the trail, absorb moisture and reduce soil erosion. Wood chips are also more comfortable to walk on. 
Mulch Work Bees were held in October and November. Despite the challenges that COVID presented the mulching was completed before the snow fell.

Promoting our Heritage Assets

Residents of Kingsmount-Bell Park are fortunate to live in an area with a rich history. The Andrew McNaughton and Aurora Dubois surveys are two of the oldest properties surveyed and subdivided beyond the downtown core. The area’s buildings, streetscapes, landscapes and other forms of cultural heritage reflect the expressions and aspirations of those who have gone before us. 

Two of these properties have been officially designated or listed as heritage sites under the Ontario Heritage Act including the Bell Mansion (1907) and David Street Water Treatment Plant (1896). A third, the former Canadian Pacific Railway Station (1907) is at the doorstep.

We all win by conserving our cultural heritage. Beyond being important to our cultural and economic development, it provides us with a strong sense of place. Your Kingsmount-Bell Park CAN can play a role in creating awareness of the heritage properties in our area. 

This steam-power electricity plant on David Street was opened in 1896 to supply the fledgling town of Sudbury with electricity to power its streetlights and downtown businesses.
