This project involves the design and construction of the Ingonish Beach Day Use Area Washroom, to replace the one destroyed by fire in 2020.
Construction is tentatively scheduled for the spring 2022 and continue for the remaining construction season.
The new facility will contain gender-neutral bathrooms, showers, changing rooms, and a multipurpose area. This building supports Ingonish Beach Day Use Area visitors, including campers using the adjacent oTENTik structures.
