Park improvements are coming to St. Clair Shores Park in Lakeshore.

New and improved amenities in the concept plan include:

  • Accessibility improvements with an additional park entrance point, including expanded curb cuts, ramps, and tactile surface indicators.
  • New asphalt trails in the park’s interior.
  • Additional play equipment and play surface improvements.
  • New pavilion/shade structure.
  • New grassed berms, shade trees, and the creation of a large open play area.

“It’s great to see another park upgrade project moving forward this year. We know how important these incredible places are to our residents,” said Mayor Tom Bain. “Like most communities facing significant increases in construction costs, we must strike a balance between what community members want and what we, as a municipality, are able to afford. While these new investments may not include everything that park users were hoping for, we will continue to work to meet their needs in creative and cost-effective ways.”

As the next step in the park improvement process, Lakeshore will issue a request for proposal for the detailed design and construction of St. Clair Shores Park. Proposals will return to Council for final approval which is expected later this year.
