As one of the largest federal custodians, Parks Canada manages a variety of real property and infrastructure assets. In these two parks, the infrastructure portfolio is wide-ranging and includes assets such as roads, bridges, buildings, trails, campgrounds, water and wastewater treatment facilities, visitor centre and operations compounds.
Parks Canada’s Federal Infrastructure Investment Program
Announced in 2015, Parks Canada is investing $3 billion over five years to rehabilitate infrastructure assets within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. Here at Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park, almost $16 million will be spent on these improvements.
This historic investment supports conservation while making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.
A significant amount of Parks Canada’s existing infrastructure assets requires action now. The improvements are expected to continue until 2020.
Spring construction updates and how it may affect your visit, will be posted here in April 2017.
Parking Lot Relocation at Singing Sands
The relocation of the parking lot at Singing Sands day-use area has begun! The parking lot on Dorcas Bay Road is being relocated to protect rare species and sensitive habitats, and to help minimize congestion issues.
The newly relocated lot should be operational for peak season 2017. Access to Singing Sands day-use area is still available throughout the relocation. This conservation and restoration initiative will ensure the quality and reliability of visitor offers at Singing Sands and continue to enhance the ability of Canadians to connect with nature.
Thank you for your patience while these project are underway.
