Members of the Ennismore Curling Club gathered together with Township of Selwyn Trails and Parks & Recreation Committee members to celebrate the completion of upgrades at the Ennismore Waterfront Park. Located at 1053 Ennis Rd in Ennismore and considered one of Selwyn’s hidden gems, the park received approximately one kilometer of accessible pathways leading from the parking lot to the beach, pavilion and washrooms.

In addition to the accessible pathways, upgrades to the Osprey nest and waterfront lookouts were also completed. Locally grown and milled cedar was used to repair the two lookouts within the park.

Since the installation of the new lime screened pathways, community members in wheelchairs, strollers and walkers have all been spotted enjoying the path.

The Ennismore Curling Club was founded in 1974 and runs from mid-October until mid-March each year. During this time, there are a number of leagues and many

tournaments “bonspiels”. There are plenty of opportunities for community members to come out to participate, compete or just watch the action.
