Leamington has been awarded $125,000 in Federal Government funding towards the Seacliff Park Waterfront Trail and Beachfront Beautification Project.
The funding has been provided through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.
The Seacliff Park Waterfront Trail and Beachfront Beautification Project includes the expansion and reconstruction of Seacliff Park beach waterfront amenities including the construction of properly designed beach volleyball courts. The project also includes the construction of additional asphalt walkways, accessibility mats for beach paths, and a seating area designed to support wheel chairs and electric scooters. Once completed, the project will support and encourage activities along Leamington’s beachfront and offer accessibility to the water’s edge.
“Our waterfront is one of our greatest assets” stated Mayor John Paterson. “The Seacliff Park Waterfront Trail and Beachfront Beautification Project is a key component of the Municipality’s overall waterfront vision, which seeks to develop a high quality public amenity, accessible to residents and visitors alike” added Paterson.
