Construction Schedule

The construction at Casablanca Waterfront is underway and is progressing on track.

The work for this contract comprises park construction, including but not limited to grading, asphalt paving, concrete work, sub-drainage, armour stone retaining walls, playgrounds, tree planting, signage, beach sand area, sodding, installation of naturalization areas, installation of washroom building, and site furniture installations (including benches and shade structures).

The improvements will be completed in several phases to maintain community access to the waterfront pathway as much as possible throughout the process. The Town's contractor began work in the east and central areas of the park in July 2023. The anticipated construction start time in the park's west end is early 2024. The completion target for all major construction works is in the winter of 2023/2024, with site restoration and plantings occurring when weather permits in the spring of 2024.

We look forward to the next steps and encourage you to follow along for progress updates!

What is happening at Casablanca Waterfront Park?

The Town of Grimsby is excited to proceed with the Casablanca Waterfront park development. Since the beginning of the development, there has been significant interest in this area. The connectivity and accessibility along the waterfront are a top priority for the Casablanca neighbourhood. In addition, developing this area to allow for better movement and higher community involvement will subsequently benefit local residents. The Casablanca Waterfront Project is a project that all Grimsby residents can enjoy; the vision is to develop the community park and promote the area as a destination park.

The Casablanca Waterfront Project spans the waterfront area from Hunter Road to the Water Treatment plant (with the easterly Losani development area to be developed later). The park project will be completed in several phases to maintain community access to the waterfront pathway as much as possible throughout the process. Therefore, some of the project's work will be completed concurrently, and some will be carried out in consecutive phases. The initial ideas towards this park are being informed by the Westend Waterfront Plan and also the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan.
