Let's have a splash pad for the kids or some water
slides to keep the beach alive. We have to have something to
keep the families here instead of travelling through town to Sauble
Beach is untidy area around station and old tennis
court is dirty. should consider replacing tennis court. When is
brick walk going to be made longer maybe to Gobles Grove.
Yes but my suggestions are likely different from the
plan. I would like- to see the removal of the 'greasy spoon' style
restaurants and ice cream shops on-the beach. Replace them with
more- modern CLEAN facilities.
Beach has not been upgraded for the - last 20 years.
Money has been spent on the harbour but not on the beach.
I was vacationing last year in Port Elgin for two
weeks. I found the - beach very littered and not raked. One thing I
don't understand you can't - walk your dog early in the morning but
it's ok to have Tim Hortons cups and garbage all over the beach!!!
When I did want to go to a beach I went to - Southampton.
Enforce the NO DOGS on beach.
The beach is the heart and soul of Port Elgin. What
the beach looks like reflects on the town. Neglect is not a good
reflection of the town.
Port Elgin needs to spend any extra cash it has on
repairing it's roads instead of the beach. Waterloo, Wellington and
Eastwood Dr. are in really bad shape and pot-hole repairs - just
does not cut it anymore. Stop - wasting money on the beach!!!!!!
The parking area should stay as sand (it makes it

cosmetic upgrading but not - replacement. Band Shell is good but it
needs to be used more frequently as an entertainment venue.
The town should never have touched it in the first
place. Let nature take its course. It is becoming too
More garbage cans and emptied regularly. Better
upkeep on structures (shelters). Put up and take down volleyball
nets to give youth something free to do! It does not interfere with
beach life. Leave them down on really busy beach days.
Today it looks really tacky...make it attractive and
Get rid of the stupid grass and snow fence and have
a nice cut lawn area at the dock area instead of what is there. and
grade the beach were you - sit. and bring back the good old beach

Our beach needs a fine dining restaurant with
evening entertainment that all (local residents and - tourists) can
enjoy with no restrictions imposed on the establishment as was with
past businesses. This is something sorely missing on our fabulous
No! What was wrong with the beach 30 - years ago.
Grading the beach lots of sand....no snow fence sidewalks &
'protected grass' (that is not - natural to the area. If it was why
has it not be growing for the past 30 yrs?
It's the 'Crown Jewel' of Port Elgin but is NOT
treated as such by council/staff. Spend any new pool money at the
beach. ...and get rid of - that ugly snow fence ASAP!
Can't help notice the recent delivery of GRAVEL used
to fill in where the pumping station was. It's a beach...not a
