About the Project

Content - City Hall - Projects - Richardson Beach

Richardson Beach in Macdonald Memorial Park is a favourite destination along the waterfront. Improvements to the beach area were identified as the top priority in the Waterfront Master Plan, which was approved by Council on March 22, 2016. The design work for the improvements occurred in 2017 and 2018. The proposed works include improved gathering spaces, access to the water and shoreline improvements.

The historic Richardson Bathhouse, also located in Macdonald Memorial Park, will be upgraded and made accessible for all members of the community. The proposed improvements to the bathhouse include improvements to the existing washrooms to meet current accessibility standards, new separate changing areas and renovation of the building's central interior foyer.
