Orillia Hosting Waterfront Open House

January 21st Event Giving Residents a Good Look At The Future of Waterfront

A lot will change for the Orillia Waterfront over the next several years and the city wants you to have a look at those plans.

An open house is being held Tuesday evening, showcasing a long-term vision for the downtown waterfront. The parkland design study will determine the future of existing elements such as the boat launch, public parking, the skate park, the park’s greenhouse, and the Terry Fox Circle; and will consider the introduction of new features such as splash play and a refrigerated skate trail.

The downtown waterfront area will be undergoing significant improvements over the coming years, including the realignment of Centennial Drive, the extension of Coldwater Road to Centennial Drive, and the waterfront redevelopment project at 70 Front St. N.

The public is encouraged to drop-in any time between 5:30 and 8 p.m. on Jan. 21 to view the displays and discuss the project. There will also be a survey to garner feedback.
