Ecological

Wright Brothers Park is one of several environmentally protected areas in Canada. The park is found in close proximity to residential areas and therefore, regulations have been put in place to ensure the conservation of the park. The park is conserved so that no new development affects the state of the park and that the park is left in it's natural state as much as possible. The lush green grass and bright flowers are one of the attractive factors of this location. To preserve the state of these plants only natural fertilizers are used in this park, which also makes it safer for the visitors.
