Mess hall at Lamrecton as Plympton-Wyoming upgrades lakeside park


Big changes are coming to Lamrecton Park.
The United Church turned the former summer camp over the municipality in 2015. The church had operated it as a day camp since 1926 and the only condition of turning it over was it would remain in public hands.
The municipality has been slowly upgrading the park, but a surprise grant from the provincial government of over $579,000 has kicked plans into high gear.
Plympton-Wyoming CAO Carolyn Tripp says contractors have been on site at the Lake Huron park preparing to do some major renovations recently approved by council.
The concrete brick mess hall near the road will be torn down at a cost of about $25,000.
A larger white-sided building will remain as storage for the municipality. It will be upgraded for about $40,000
The parking area will be upgraded in the area at a cost of about $80,000.
Tripp says the municipality plans a pavilion with water and hydro for family gatherings closer to the lakefront. That will cost about $70,000.
And there will be new, fully accessible washrooms as well, that will cost about $150,000. They will be unisex with two stalls.
A beach volleyball court will also be built.
Contractors are already working on the project says Tripp.
“We’re hoping to have the work done this year and I’d like to have a grand reopening in the fall,” she says.
The project takes up the majority of the grant, however council has also directed staff to use $150,000 to provide accessible washrooms for Centennial Park in Wyoming.
