assist in the maintenance of trails, trail markers and even installed
trail benches for you to sit and enjoy the quiet moments at Ferris. A
major project undertaken by the Friends was in partnership with the Campbellford
Rotary Club, who helped build a picnic shelter. This has since been replaced,

company picnics and special events in the Park all benefit from this structure.
Another recent improvement is the purchase and installation of playground
equipment much to the delight of young campers.
