JOY: 9th Line Park Improvements

The Town of Innisfil is re-imagining road ends. We want to enhance our parks, add an element of wonder, and expand upon social spaces for the community to congregate and enjoy themselves. Over the past year since the public meeting, a new design has been ‘in the works’ for 9th Line road end. This design has emerged from new research and residents input, in addition to input received during the development of Innisfil's Official Plan - Our Place

The design is now complete and construction will begin this September. Construction to be completed SPRING 2020. Access to Lake will open December 2019.

The photo above is a rendering of how the park will look, not much different than how it looks now. What you can't see in the rendering is the addition of stormwater pipes to improve local drainage.

The following improvements will be completed:

  • Removal of sections of asphalt at 9th Line road end and replacement with beach sand.
  • A new gate at end of 9th Line that can be opened for winter access to the lake.
  • Regrading of the existing park with new grass and an expansion of the beach sand area.
  • A new stormwater outlet with naturalized plantings specifically recommended by the Lake Simcoe Valley Conservation Authority for birds and flowers for pollinators.
  • New benches and picnic tables.
  • Gravel parking lot with 10 spaces. While many of you are a close walk to the park, this parking lot will allow easy access for people with mobility issues or families with small children.
  • A new 3 way stop at the intersection of 10th Line and Leonards St. & Goodfellow Ave.

  • I just read an update that bathroom facilities are not included. Can we submit for a portable unit? It's impossible to spend any amount of time at a beach without some sort of washroom. It seems futile to spend all that money for the wonderful renovation so that we can all finally enjoy the beach when we cannot enjoy it for any considerable time without a washroom on site.

    Yes we will have portable units on site in the summer 

  • Is the park going to be for residence only or will it be the same as this past summer with hundreds of non residents using the park for free and residents kids crying because there was no room for them to go for a swim . If it is going to be for residents only how do you propose to control the entry ?

    John Goodfellow asked 2 months ago

    This park is intended to be a walk-able park for the residents in the area. The  new parking lot will not specifically be for Innisfil residents only, however the parking lot will only have 10 spaces and of those 10 spaces there will be designated spots for families with small children and accessible parking. 

    9th Line from 25th Sideroad to the Lake is no parking.

    This year from June 2019 to September 30th the Town issued a pilot project that only allows resident parking along certain streets. The following roads to the 9th Line park were included:  

    Leonard Street from Rose Lane to 9th  & Goodfellow Ave- 9th Line to End of Road

    The Innisfil Beach Park Ad- hoc will be reviewing this pilot project and I will pass on these comments.
