9th Line Park Improvements

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Innisfil is re-imagining road ends to enhance our parks, add an element of wonder, and expand upon social spaces for the community to congregate and enjoy themselves. From the public meeting the design emerged from residents input and input received during the development of Innisfil's Official Plan - Our Place

The 9th line Road End improvements commenced construction in 2019

The park improvements are:

  • 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
  • New benches and picnic tables
  • a New bike Rack
  • 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

The photo above is a rendering of the park.

During construction in 2019 the design was changed slightly from the above rendering to avoid a watermain conflict, which resulted in moving part of the stormwater channel into the park. The open channel and stormwater pipes were included in the design to improve local drainage, the open channel with naturalized plantings was recommended by the Lake Simcoe Valley Conservation Authority for riparian habitat, birds and flowers for pollinators.

The park will be restored by July 2020 however you can expect to see some in water construction after July- these improvements will enhance the beach area, this construction is slightly delayed due to construction timing windows set by by the Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s (DFO).

    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 ?

    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.
