Rouge Beach Improvement Project

As many of you may know, Parks Canada has put a lot of time and energy into their plans to improve the Rouge Beach area at the end of Lawrence Ave. This treasured site is now a part of the Rouge National Urban Park. In February, Parks Canada released a  “Detailed Impact Assessment” on the improvements that are proposed.

This study reveals steps for everything from the protection of native species to the construction of a fully accessible boardwalk along the Rouge River from the beach to the Glen Rouge Campground. Residents can request to download the assessment by emailing Public comments for it can be sent to the same email. The comment period ends on March 2.

You can learn more about the project and read the “What We Heard Report” if you go to the Parks Canada website at
