South Shell Park closed starting June 29, 2020

Mon, 22 Jun 2020

Beginning June 29, the Town of Oakville will be making enhancements to the South Shell Park shoreline to improve access to the waterfront and the safety of the seawall. This work includes removal of old steel and concrete structures, restoration and expansion of the shoreline, providing formal beach access, pathways and stairs, a lookout area and benches. In order to safely complete this work, portions of the park (including the parking lot) will be closed until approximately July 31.

The work, formerly planned to be a six-week project is now scheduled to be completed in four weeks.

We are following Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry regulations to protect fish habitat and conduct the shoreline work between critical spring and fall fish spawning periods.

A naturalization and tree planting plan is being implemented to replace trees that have been removed, increase canopy cover, add shade, improve biodiversity and provide habitat for migratory birds.
