Leamington’s iconic tomato visitor information booth is in bad shape according to town officials and will be closed for the season.

Upon opening for the 2019 season, it was discovered that the structure had deteriorated into a state of disrepair since its closure in the fall of 2018. Officials say it has deteriorated to such an extent that the Leamington Chamber of Commerce, which operates the booth, was concerned for the safety of its volunteer ambassadors.

The tomato visitor information booth will remain closed pending the completion of a condition assessment and the development of an action plan.

The municipality will be examining how to effectively deliver visitor information services, which may focus on the use of mobile technology to fill the gap for the 2019 season.
