Recreation Committee Happenings and Upcoming Events!

Beach Improvement Project
Thanks to the funds from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Recreation Committe
e has started a Beach Improvement Project. The purpose of this project is to allow more residents better access to physical activities. The project involves the removal of the beach shack and the construction of a small pavilion. This will allow for a comfortable shaded area for residents to use when enjoying outdoor physical activity.  The pavilions concrete floor will allow for addition physical activities in the future. In addition for the kids to enjoy, a new swing set and slide will be installed. The project began mid-June and will not be completed until the end of July, right in time for the Annual Horseshoe Tournament and Beach Day.

Phosphorus is known to contribute to the growth of blue-green algae.  Research has proven that shoreline vegetation contributes to the health of lakes and streams, including how it prevents nutrients such as phosphorus from entering the waterways. 
The North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority is offering property owners in our municipality free shoreline planting in 2017.   Over the past 2 years, more than 70 property owners have taken part in the program, planting more than 12,500 trees, shrubs and plants.   Contact www.restoreyourshore.ca
for more information on the 2017 Program.
