Waterfront Park Construction
As a result of significant storm and wave damage in 2017, several waterfront parks in Port Credit are undergoing shoreline and walkway repairs. Restricted public access within the parks has occurred to ensure public safety while construction is taking place. Refer to map for details.
Note: Construction schedules below may vary pending weather, water levels and other factors.
St. Lawrence Park
- Upper and lower promenade walkways and stone walls and stairs will be reconstructed.
- A wave deflector will be added to the existing sheet pile wall and a new concrete seat wall will be added at the water’s edge
- Other than the new seat wall, the park will look the same as it did before storm damage.
- The west side of park including the Waterfront Trail and parking lot is closed for public safety.
- Trail and park users are to use the sidewalks along Port Street East and St. Lawrence Drive and the east side of the park while the park is under construction.
- A temporary asphalt pathway from St. Lawrence Drive to the Waterfront Trail has been installed while the west side of the park is under construction.
J.J. Plaus Park
- Reconstruction of the concrete walkway and a new concrete seat wall at the water’s edge.
- Replacement of stone pavement with concrete pavement in areas along the Waterfront Trail and southern walkway.
- The walkway area west of Snug Harbour will be closed for public safety.
- The walkway between Credit Village Marina Building and Stavebank Road entrance will be closed for public safety.
J.C. Saddington Park
- Reconstruction of a portion of the Waterfront Trail and a new concrete curb wall next to the existing boardwalk.
- The boardwalk and adjacent Waterfront Trail will be closed for public safety.
Ash Tree Removals
Forestry staff are currently removing dead ash trees from woodlots across the city that have been infested with Emerald Ash Borer.
What type of work is being conducted?
Forestry staff will be removing dead ash trees from woodlots that have been infested by Emerald Ash Borer. Crews will be removing EAB-affected trees around the perimeter of the woodlots near or adjacent to residents’ private property and along sanctioned pathways throughout the woodlots.
In some cases, limb and trunk wood is left on site within the wooded area after work has been completed. By doing so, we do not disturb or affect the sensitive regeneration of native flora and fauna and encourage natural regeneration by providing materials for regrowth and habitat for woodland insects and animals.
Why are these trees being removed?
These ash trees have been infested by Emerald Ash Borer. Once infested by EAB, an ash tree dies quickly—leaving a dead or dying tree that poses safety risks.
Where can I receive updates on work being done?
Updates on this project will be posted on this webpage and will also be shared on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram social media channels.
