Please stay distanced while you enjoy your walk 

Current Ontario COVID-19 regulations allow for the Sculpture Forest trails to remain open to the public. Please help us keep it that way by practicing appropriate physical distancing measures on the trails, at the trailheads, and in the parking lots.

We ask that you stay within the group that you came with in order to respect the health and safety of other visitors, and we ask you to follow the best practices for health and safety in the following ways:

  • If you are arriving by car, park a few meters away from other cars.

  • On the trails, keep 2 meters (6 ft) apart from other visitors.

  • Wear a mask in any situation where you are unable to stay 2 meters apart or when you are passing other walkers. or when you are using the washroom facilities

  • Keep your dog on a leash at all times.

 

At the moment, the only washroom available for public usage in Glebe Park, is the one in Glebe Field near the entrance closest to the Haliburton Highlands Museum. You are welcome to sit on the benches in the Sculpture Forest and use the picnic tables in the park.

We don't know how long the virus can live on various surfaces under different weather conditions. Please avoid unnecessary touching of the sculptures since the sculptures are not frequently sanitized as it may damage the surface of some pieces. Please follow all current health and safety practices, and bring your own hand sanitizer if you prefer to use it. Remember not to touch your face and to wash your hands when you get home or before eating.

 

As an outdoor attraction we do not require proof of vaccination or require visitors to disclose their vaccination status to use our trails or attend a tour. Screening questions and contact tracing information must be documented before beginning a guided tour but documentation is not required for regular entrance. In accordance to current provincial regulations, we ask all visitors of the following:

  • Do not visit the Sculpture Forest if you or someone you live with are feeling unwell, has new COVID-19-like symptoms, or has new symptoms and is waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test

  • Do not visit the Sculpture Forest if you or someone in your household are under orders by The Ministry of Health to quarantine for any reason

  • Do not visit the Sculpture Forest if you or someone you live with has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days and have not since been cleared by a local public health unit
