The Great Lakes Challenge is made possible by the generosity of The W. Garfield Weston Foundation. Through their $1 million grant we are transforming the way that we think about restoration and connecting people to water. 

Moving forward, The Great Lakes Challenge aims to partner with other communities to develop and execute revolutionary restoration projects changing the Great Lakes experience forever. 

The Gord Edgar Downie Pier was officially unveiled during the re-opening ceremonies of
Breakwater Park on July 26, 2018.
