The province is investing $328,000 for upgrades at four provincial parks in HRM.
“We are improving the buildings and boardwalks of these very popular parks so they can continue to serve the tens of thousands of visitors they get each year,” said Natural Resources Minister Lloyd Hines, today, Aug.
31, at Lawrencetown Beach.
The Cole Harbour-Lawrencetown Coastal Heritage Provincial Park system includes Lawrencetown and Conrods beaches. The boardwalk and bridge at Conrods Beach will be repaired, a new set of stairs built and an old access gate replaced. Lawrencetown Beach Provincial Park will get upgrades to the water system for shower and washroom facilities and the onsite canteen.
Clam Harbour Beach Provincial Park will get an upgrade to its wheelchair ramps to improve accessibility.
Porters Lake Provincial Park will renovate washrooms and showers. The park’s water distribution system to camping areas will be enhanced and lighting at the park entrance will be upgraded for safety. The main building will also be repaired and painted.
Work at Porters Lake has begun. Projects at the other parks will start after the public tenders are finished.
