Effective January 14, Oakville is under a stay-at-home order as part of the second provincial emergency due to COVID-19. Other restrictions are in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines. The town is reviewing the provincial declaration and will post any service impacts as soon as possible.
The Town of Oakville has assessed the shoreline protection needs at Vista Promenade and Water's Edge Park, bordered by Bronte Heritage park to the west and Water's Edge Drive to the east. The current shoreline protection measures in place have deteriorated over the years, and this deterioration has accelerated given recent high lake water levels.
Once shoreline protection work is complete, the town will carryout improvements to this section of waterfront trail. Changes include accessibility improvements, asphalt paving, pathway widening, drainage improvements and tree planting.
Construction is tentatively scheduled for November 2020. During this time access to the waterfront trail will be limited.
On December 11, 2019 an open house was held by the town to present information on the shoreline protection design. Review the documents from the open house:
