Dominion No. 4, From Mine Site to Community Park

ECBC has created a new community recreational park on the remediated site of the former Dominion No. 4 Coal Mine in Glace Bay.

The redevelopment of Dominion No. 4 is part of ECBCs Mine Site Closure Program involving 13 groups of former mine sites throughout the Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Remediated land is being redeveloped in order to facilitate economic development and to benefit the local community.

Remediation of the No. 4 site began in 2008. The new recreational park features walking trails, a regulation eight-lane running track and a soccer field. Community infrastructure of this type helps make Glace Bay a better place to live and invest.

The Dominion No. 4 Glace Bay Mine was operated by the Dominion Coal Company between 1866 and 1961. With a total work force of almost 700, the colliery produced almost 29 million tons of coal over its lifetime and worked an area of over 6,100 acres. The mine became the responsibility of the Government of Canada in 1967 when the Cape Breton Development Corporation was created and assumed ownership of the assets of the Dominion Coal Company.
