Beach & Boardwalk Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
Draft conceptual renderings offer us a glimpse of a reimagined Rouge Beach and Wetland area where careful planning, enhanced visitor services and park presence,  addressing rising water levels and eroding shoreline and wetland restoration and ecological health gains will ensure the long term protection and enjoyment of this cherished location.

This project features a revitalization of the Beach Day Use Area, one of the most visited areas in Rouge National Urban Park; a new signature trail that will provide an in-park connection from Rouge Beach to the existing Mast trail; and a revitalization of the existing Mast Trailhead, which will be the northern limit of this new signature trail. This project will enhance and further protect the natural and cultural integrity of the area and foster meaningful connections to its beauty and rich history.

We want to hear from you! During the engagement phase of this project, our team will use a variety of tools and techniques to ensure you have the opportunity to provide your feedback, even with COVID 19 physical distancing measures in place. Engagement for this project will rely heavily on web and social media platforms. We all look forward to when we can make more in person connections but for now, , we'll make sure we receive all your input, whether online or over the phone.
