Port Dover’s new waterfront park is starting to take shape, writes Dan Pearce in the Simcoe Reformer. Sheets of metal 25-feet long have been put up along the shoreline between the museum and the lift-bridge and driven into the ground all the way to the bedrock. They will hold back erosion and have allowed for the addition of floating docks for small boats, canoes, and kayaks. Officials expect grass to be planted this fall on land. Park benches, picnic tables, a covered pavilion shaped like a sail, which will double as an outdoor performance space, and stylized lamp posts will be added later on. The middle of the park will be a large green space surrounded by trees and walkways. The project is all part of a redevelopment of Port Dover’s waterfront along Harbour Street.
