RFP Issued for Former Day Use Provincial Park

The Department of Fisheries and Land Resources has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the use of a decommissioned provincial park area in Glenwood, located in central Newfoundland. The RFP can be viewed online at and proposals will be accepted until April 27, 2018.

The former provincial day use park is located on the south side of the Trans-Canada Highway approximately 3.3 kilometres east of the community of Appleton. The park opened in 1966 and was decommissioned in 1995. The approximate total area for the former park is 92 hectares; approximately 60.8 hectares is land and 31.2 hectares is water and shoreline reservations.

Only proposals for parks, campgrounds and other tourism related activities will be accepted with the successful proponent applying for a Crown Land grant for the park or a portion thereof.

Improving efficiencies in services offered to residents is part of the Provincial Government’s Way Forward commitment to enhance access to Crown lands and to deliver more services online. Additional RFPs for decommissioned park areas will be posted online when available.

“Changes associated with the management and allocation of our former provincial parks in 2015 meant residents had the option to purchase the property at market value. This allows for future economic growth for the Glenwood area as well as tourism potential for central Newfoundland.”
Honourable Gerry Byrne
Minister of Fisheries and Land Resources
