May 2022 updates, wall nearing completion.
October 2021 An erosion control project is underway with funding from Canada and Ontario. Signage is in place and work on the erosion control way is progressing.
In 2007 the Township purchased a large acreage with water frontage in the Frenchman’s Rock Road area. With assistance from the Province of Ontario a municipal water front park is being developed. This park is for day use only with no plans for overnight camping. The first phase of the project was completed in November 2008. This phase included brush & tree removal, development of a parking lot and access trail, landscaping and seeding of the picnic area. In 2010 the picnic pavilion(s) and the toilet/change rooms were completed. With financial assistance from the Federal and Provincial Governments under the Build Canada program in 2009-2010 the park has been enlarged, walking trails and playground equipment have been installed. The official opening was held September 4th 2010. Better wheelchair access from the parking area to the pavilion and beach area is being considered for 2019.
