Lions Bay Beach Park Revitalization
The Lions Bay Beach Park Advisory Committee (LBBPAC) was established in 2017 to explore opportunities for improvements at Lions Bay Beach Park. The Committee considered the current condition of the park, consulted with the residents of Lions Bay through a survey, reviewed and prepared recommendations for improvements to the beach park, and prepared a Recommendations Working Paper.
Recommended Phase I improvements included a beach shower, installation of pavers at the head of the stone steps and adding handrails, repair of the main stair, removal of three large compromised trees, and a new kayak, canoe, and paddle board facility. Total budgeted cost was $30,000.
Phase II is the LBBPAC’s forward vision for the beach park and is included in the current Five Year Financial Plan, but is presently without a funding source. The incoming Council will have an opportunity to receive public feedback on the Lions Bay Beach Park Revitalization Draft Concept Plan and consider funding options in the course of the 2019 budget planning process.
