Work to stabilize a shoreline path below Scarborough’s Guild Park will be done over the next three weeks, says a local volunteer group.

In announcing the project, Friends of Guild Park and Gardens called metal reinforcement bars in rubble below the park “dangerous and unsightly.”

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, responsible for the Lake Ontario shoreline, will start placing about 30 truckloads of clean fill below the park, starting on Tuesday, Aug. 2.

“The TRCA is doing this work after the Guildwoood Village Community Association has raised concerns about the poor condition of this popular walking area along Lake Ontario,” the Friends group said on Facebook last week.

During construction, the conservation authority is blocking access to the area, including to a roadway down to the shore from Guildwood Parkway, weekdays between 7 a.m and 5 p.m.

The shoreline below the park may be popular, but the TRCA says it is not safe to walk on.

Its Scarborough Waterfront Project, which is still under study, proposes a plan for safe access to the shore through a series of new waterfront green spaces below the Bluffs connecting Bluffers Park with East Point Park at the mouth of Highland Creek.
