Shelburne Promenade Shoreline Improvements

The Town of Oakville has initiated a study to assess shoreline protection needs at Shelburne Promenade, which is located east of Great Lakes Boulevard off of Shelburne Place. Shelburne Promenade has been identified as a top priority site for shoreline protection repair and maintenance due to the deteriorated condition of protection measures currently in-place.

Shelburne Promenade and other town-owned shoreline properties were re-assessed and re-prioritized following the high lake level conditions in 2017. The 2017 Shoreline Inventory and Assessment will be finalized shortly and will be made available on our Shoreline page.

Open House

An open house was held on March 21, 2018 to give opportunity for the public to review and provide feedback on the proposed shoreline improvements. Review the information presented at this public meeting:

Project Status and Construction

 The scope of works includes reconstruction of the shoreline armourstone wall and adding boulder groynes and clusters for fish habitat.  Additional works to include widening the mouth of Sheldon Creek have been added since the public meeting.

Construction on the shoreline rehabilitation was completed in November 2018.  Additional restoration of the area, including landscaping, tree planting and trail construction will be carried out in Spring/Summer 2019.
