Ontario Place’ map shows closed areas
For the former tenants of Ontario Place’ 240 slips, this will be a stressful summer searching for accommodation for their craft after receiving news that the marina will not be open this summer. According to CTV, boat owners were informed last Tuesday that their slips would not be available for 2023 during what Ontario Place refers to in this brief statement on its website:
“As part of the redevelopment of Ontario Place, the Marina will be within an active construction zone, starting in spring 2023. In order to maintain safety for everyone, this part of the site will be closed to the public and boaters.
Starting in spring 2023, site servicing construction work will begin. This work is to upgrade the site’s infrastructure, such as sewage, water, electrical and gas services.”
According to Storey’s real estate newsletter, Ontario Place Marina will re-open at some yet undetermined future date.
“Reps for Ontario Place did tell STOREYS that, naturally, plans to reopen the marina depend on completion timelines. “New investment will help protect against rising lake levels and modernize the marina buildings,” they said. The current facility is aging and in undeniable need of upgrades — something the boaters agree on.
‘We look forward to re-opening an updated marina facility at the future redeveloped Ontario Place which, once complete, will be a remarkable world-class, year-round destination that will include family-friendly entertainment, public and event spaces, parkland, and waterfront access,’ reads both the email to boaters and the statement to STOREYS.”
