The massive Bruce Peninsula National Park near Tobermory just got bigger, with 3,272 acres of forest and coastline being recently added to the park.
The purchase of the Driftwood Cove property cost $22.5 million, paid for mainly by the federal government, with $1.9 million contributed by the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
The land acquisition means the national park is now 90 per cent complete.
The land was “conditionally” purchased in July, with the final sale going through on November 30th.
The newly purchased land adds 6.5 km of Georgian Bay shoreline and 8 km of Bruce Trail to the park.
