The Town of Grimsby unveils the new Casablanca Waterfront Park

The Town of Grimsby is proud to announce the opening of Casablanca Waterfront Park. Located along the scenic Lake Ontario, this park is a testament to the Town’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life for residents in Grimsby. This project has transformed the beachfront into a premier community destination, blending leisure and natural spaces, while offering residents and visitors a vibrant destination for recreation, cultural activities, and community engagement. 

Park Opening

Town Council, Staff from the Town of Grimsby, including members of Community Services, and Seferian Design Group, gathered Thursday, June 28, 2024, for a ceremonial ribbon cutting to officially open the park. While there are a few areas of the park still being completed, the project is now largely complete.

Updated Features include:

  • Walking and Biking Trails: Enjoy scenic views along the beautifully landscaped paths along Lake Ontario.
  • Recreational Facilities: The park includes a new playground, picnic area, several beaches, multi-use pathways and pavilions.
  • Cultural Spaces: An outdoor area and pavilion for all ages.

Project Highlights:

  • Community Engagement: The park was designed with influence from community feedback collected during multiple rounds of engagement (Let’s Talk Grimsby)
  • Design and Features: Emphasis has been placed on accessibility, environmental preservation and creating a welcoming community space.
  • Construction and Development: Initiated in summer 2023, the construction project was completed in multiple phases to ensure ongoing access to the waterfront. Main construction is now complete, with final landscaping and site restoration wrapping up. 

Upcoming Highlights:

  • Phase Two: The central park will feature an asphalt pathway, central viewing terrace, accessible beach mat, new staircases and improved landscaping.
  • Phase Three: The eastern section will boast a new washroom pavilion, enhanced playground spaces, flexible event areas, and improved waterfront access. 

The Casablanca Waterfront Park lines Lake Ontario, from Hunter Road to the Water Treatment plant (with the easterly Losani development area to be developed at a later date). This revitalized park provides a vibrant and multifunctional community space that celebrates the Town’s natural environment and promotes social and economic growth. 

We invite everyone to join us for this historic occasion and experience the beauty and excitement of the Casablanca Waterfront Park.
