Peterborough’s Beavermead Campground Renovates Gatehouse

Share This Post

The construction process has begun for the new gatehouse at Peterborough‘s (Ontario, Canada) Beavermead Campground.

As per a report, the development is part of the third phase of the Beavermead Campground Implementation Capital Project, launched ten years ago to make improvements and upgrades to the park.

The campground is situated next to Beavermead’s lakeside park off Ashburnham Drive.

The project’s initial phase saw electrical and water added to the campsites in 2016, while the second phase saw demolition and construction of a new comfort station on-site in 2019.

The plan with the third phase was to design and build a new entrance gatehouse pavilion equipped with better campground entry gate systems.

The plan is to build it and have it ready to go by May when the camping season starts.

The city-owned campground is under the supervision of Otonabee Conservation from mid-May to mid-October.

Last year, the council put aside CA$500,000 to build a new replacement pavilion. Mortlock Construction bid CA$576,600 to demolish the existing building and construct a new one. However, other expenses, such as permits, surveys, consulting fees, and testing, totaled CA$709,400.
