COVID-19 Protocols

at the Haliburton Sculpture Forest

Updated: April 17, 2021

Please stay distanced while you enjoy your walk,  then return home.

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 practising appropriate physical distancing measures on the trails, at the trailheads, and in the parking lots.


To ensure that we follow the best practices for health and safety, we have implemented the following protocols:


Our trails are open. You can use our PocketSights Tours app (click here) to create your own self-guided tour. 


The Sculpture Forest has also partnered with Yours Outdoors to offer small group guided tours. These tours are put on hold until the current restrictions are lifted. For more information please click here.

Current Ontario regulations require everyone to keep to groups of individuals who live in the same household or if you live on your own, you can walk with one other person (as long as you maintain physical distancing). We ask you to support these restrictions in the following ways:

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

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

  • Wear a mask in any situation where you are unable to stay 2 metres apart or when you are passing other walkers.

  • 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 near the entrance closest to the Haliburton Highlands Museum. 

You are allowed to sit on the benches in the Sculpture Forest (following the grouping guidelines above) but not allowed to use the picnic tables in the park.

We don't know how long the virus can live on various surfaces and we are not cleaning the sculptures on a regular basis. Please follow all of the health and safety practices. Remember not to touch your face and to wash your hands when you get home.

Please contact us at if you have any questions.
