Halton Region wants you to keep off the grass.

Really.

But they aren’t getting all 1960s on you, they just don’t want you walking on the freshly planted sod along Beachway Park in Burlington.

Halton recently completed rehabilitation of the dunes at the park and the new grass will grow better if it’s not being trampled upon.

“We just need the new grass to take root so that it can grow,” explained a Halton Region official. “So if people can stay away from that area that would be great.”

The dune rehabilitation was carried out to help prevent flooding and erosion in that area.

It’s all part of a bigger project along the waterfront to keep the beach environmentally healthy for the public and wildlife to enjoy for years to come.

Other work that will be completed during this upgrade includes habitat restoration and additional boardwalks.
