Town Seeking Community Input On Accessibility Upgrades At Annie Williams Memorial Park


The Town is seeking community input on accessible upgrades at Annie Williams Memorial Park in Bracebridge.

Based on recommendations from the Recreation, Parks and Trails Master Plan, the Town’s Accessibility Advisory Committee identified the construction of an accessible pathway at Annie Williams Memorial Park as an initiative to complete in 2022. The Town has included the project within the approved 2022 Municipal Budget and Business Plan.

The project involves the construction of a 550-metre long and 1.5-metre wide barrier-free trail at Annie Williams Memorial Park.

The proposed barrier-free trail will provide accessible and inclusive access to the park’s waterfront. Along with the trail, the Town will install benches to give users with mobility or respiratory issues an opportunity to take a rest during their visit. These benches will be made of Muskoka granite stone, with funding coming from third-party donations through the Town’s Commemorative Program and Operating Budget.

“While the scope of the project has been established, we would love to hear from the community about any other ideas to improve accessibility at Annie Williams Park,” said Gillian Mitchell, Parks and Trails Foreperson. “We look forward to seeing this project come to life and creating a more inclusive space in the community.”

Visit to share other ideas you may have about accessibility at Annie Williams Park. They will be collecting ideas until Sunday April 10, 2022.
