Halton Region will receive up to $652,054 in funding from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Ontario (FedDev Ontario) through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. The funding will be used for enhancements to the Spencer Smith Park portion of the Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park.
The money for Spencer Smith Park will be used to enhance the waterfront trail throughout this section of the Regional Waterfront Park, provide improved seating and shaded areas for residents and visitors, update landscaping and renovate an existing gazebo. Planning for this work began in April 2016 and is expected to be completed by December 31, 2017.
In 2015, Halton Regional Council approved a Master Plan to transform Burlington Beach Regional Waterfront Park into a four-season urban waterfront. In a press release the Region says the park is one of the only natural sand beaches in North America located in a downtown urban context that is fully accessible to the public.
