The grand opening of Coultice Park is set to take place on Saturday, June 17 at 10am.

The event will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayor Justin Altmann and Council, the Coultice family, the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, landscape architect Landscape Planning Ltd., and park contractor Latitude 67 Ltd.

“We are thrilled to provide the residents of Musselman’s Lake with a community park,” said Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville Leisure and Community Services Director, Rob Raycroft. “After a decade of intense research and planning, Coultice Park has finally come to fruition. We have thoroughly taken into consideration residents’ wants and needs in a neighbourhood park and I believe they will be very happy with this.”

The park land, donated by the James Coultice Estate, is approximately five acres in size within the community of Mussleman’s Lake. Amenities were selected based on public consultation which includes a children’s playground, splash pad, fitness equipment, an accessible washroom, and parking lot.

Parking for the event will be available at the Cedar Beach parking lot; however, residents who live close by are encouraged to walk to the park located at 14769 Ninth Line. This is a rain or shine event.
