Since January, 2013, the 16 members of the the Bonshaw Hills Public Lands Committee (BHPLC), representing various government and non-government organizations, have provided guidance on the development and protection of valuable public lands in the Bonshaw area.
In October, 2013 the BHPLC presented a report to Government, "Recommendations for the Conservation of Public Lands, Bonshaw - New Haven".  This report outlined twenty recommendations to Government on the future long term protection and management of environmentally sensitive lands in the Bonshaw Hills.
A subcommittee has been working together since January, 2014 to implement many of the recommendations contained within the report, including the creation of a 600 acre four-season park that provides linkages between Strathgartney and Bonshaw (see map below).  Through a partnership with CyclingPEI, more than 20 kilometres of multi-use trail has been constructed within the park, and a natural playground has also been constructed.  As recommended by the committee, the parkland has been protected through the Natural Areas Protection Act (NAPA).
