Sturgeon Point Road Report – Canada Day Weekend

As many of you have no doubt noticed, on Canada Day Lake Road was transformed into a brand new east-west route along our shore. Smooth and black, it will be easier on our vehicle shock absorbers and hotter under bare feet in the summer. The Royel Paving crew worked hard to complete this stage of the work before the weekend. The short strip along Irene between Sixth St. and Lake Road will be paved on Monday. Rain had left it too soft to pave on Thursday. Royel will be back to clean up the edges of the road where the gravel is banked too high, and they will remove the stakes and pylons that mark the edge of the roadway.
We look forward to further road maintenance on our side streets next year.

Sturgeon Point in the News

Recent activities in our small corner of the world have attracted some interest from the media. The Park in the Woods project was mentioned in both The Lindsay Post and The Promoter. 

The park project is certainly deserving of attention, but Sturgeon Point isn’t just about the park. Kawartha Life thought that the SLSC’s ongoing program deserved some attention in their big summer issue, and we’ve captured that article for you too.
