Garnet Graham Park, Canada Day 2015

Garnet

The Canada Geese had taken over the park and avoiding their droppings was quite a challenge! A small group of concerned citizens formed a group called TBTB (Take Back The Beach) and for the rest of the summer of 2015 picked up after the geese on a daily basis. Going forward, the ultimate goal of this group is to help prevent the beach from being “posted”. Other factors are involved pertaining to the beach being posted, but the goose poo (call it what it is), is the main one.

“Many Hands Make Light Work”.   Our small group is looking for volunteers for approximately 1 hour a week, or every other week, to help with this community effort. We have a very flexible schedule and even if you can only help a few times over the summer, every little bit helps!

Thanks to the generosity of several local businesses, the required “tools of the trade” are available and kept at a location very close to the park. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses – Grr8 Finds, Big Event Floral and Decorating, Home Hardware, Canadian Tire, Kawartha Lakes Agri Services and Kawartha Lakes Home Improvements.

Quoting one of our volunteers who already contacted me to ensure that the park doesn’t get out of control like last year, “I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to what Fenelon Falls has to offer. To keep the beach clean, no matter whose responsibility it is, gives me as a citizen a great sense of pride in this home community I live in. Thanks for including me in this effort. I consider this a gift”!

Fenelon Beach Attracting Tourists for Years (April 2015)

April 26, 2015

Fenelon Beach

 

The beautiful shores of Cameron Lake has been attracting tourists for many years. The Garnet Graham Park and Beach was once a popular camping spot for those wanting to explore the area around Fenelon Falls. In years gone by, tents belonging to overnight campers were a regular sight in the areas we now enjoy as our community park.

For those that live in Fenelon Falls, the attraction to the beautiful beach located in the middle of town makes perfect sense. An afternoon picnic, a swim on a hot summer day, a daily walk along the waterfront, or a play at the park with the kids, are all things we can enjoy daily.  It is just one of the things that make our town an amazing place to live.
