St. Lawrence Parks Commission has launched a multi-year project to restore its Brown’s Bay Beach site along the Thousand Islands Parkway in Mallorytown, Ontario. The first phase of the restoration includes key infrastructure upgrades including new accessible, gender-neutral washrooms and changerooms, a new canteen, a reconstruction of a portion of the seawall, and a new and improved septic system.
This revitalization project represents a key investment in the Brown’s Bay infrastructure and sustainability. Brown’s Bay is the first SLPC beach to undergo revitalization, as part of planned upgrades to all parks, fulfilling strategic objectives set out in SLPC’s new strategic plan, Strengthening our Foundation for a Sustainable Future (2021-2026). When the construction is complete, the revitalized park will be an asset to the community, and a highlight for visitors to the area.
