Sunset Beach Community Vision

City Council to consider the Sunset Beach Community Vision July 15.

Thank you to everyone who helped shape the future of Sunset Beach. The online questions is closed.

On Monday, July 15, St. Catharines City Council considered the Sunset Beach Community Vision you helped develop. Sunset Beach is a beloved City park with a beach, parking lot, playground, washroom, and boat launch. The City will need to repair or replace many of the amenities at Sunset Beach over the next few years. The Sunset Beach Community Vision is the first step to providing the necessary improvements for this valued park to serve the community for years to come.

City Council endorsed the Sunset Beach Community Vision and directed staff to report back on acquiring land from the Niagara Region for a secondary access in the north-end area of the beach.

Council also directed the Mayor and the City’s Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) to engage with the CAO and Chair of the Niagara Region to access funds through the Greater Niagara Cycle Route Reserve to complete the trail and parkette along the east side of Malcolmson Eco Park.
