It’s clean-up time at Muskoka Bay Park.
It’s been closed since a food truck exploded in October, with officials saying they have been working on a plan to ensure proper remediation, due to all the debris from the blast. Officials say the food truck operator’s insurance is paying for the clean up.
Town officials say while all dates are approximate and subject to weather conditions, it’s anticipated the work will proceed as follows:
Nov. 16-17 – mobilization of crew and equipment to start heavy debris removal and disposal.
Nov. 20-24 – completion of aggregate removal from the parking lot, removal of grass and soil, removal of playground sand.
Nov. 27 to an undetermined date (dependent on weather conditions) – installation of topsoil, sand, and parking lot aggregates. If winter weather interferes with the installation of new materials at the site, this work will be completed in the spring.
Spring 2024 – sod placement.
The official park reopening is slated for next spring.
