Shade for the splash pad, Muskoka Wharf upgrades, new boards for the Bay Street hockey rink and several more improvements are on tap for Gravenhurst.
This week, the Town announced a number of parks-related improvement projects.
To ensure ball containment, a hoistable barrier net will be installed on a portion of the outside perimeter of the baseball diamond located at Muskoka Bay Park. The hoistable barrier netting will span from the first base line to the centre field. Work should be finished by late July.
As part of a multi-year initiative, the Town will replace and/ or upgrade several stair and bridge structures within the park and recreational trail systems. 2023 projects include Peninsula Trail, Cooper’s Falls and Ungerman Gateway Park. Ten new accessible picnic tables will also be situated at various parks and open spaces throughout the Town.
The decades-old hockey boards situated at 1111 Bay St. have been removed in preparation for the installation of new hockey boards which are intended to be more functional than that of the former structure (i.e. end board containment netting). The work will be done in late summer.
The Muskoka Wharf will see upgrades including the replacement of various sections of the boardwalk.
New shade structures have been installed at the splash pad situated at 1111 Bay Street. Three in all, these shade structures not only offer shade, but additional seating for patrons using this facility.
As part of a multi-year initiative, the Town continues to acquire solar radar speed signs. In 2022, five solar radar signs were acquired and installed. Three are scheduled to be acquired in 2023. Locations to be determined.
