Jack Darling Park

With the redevelopment of Jack Darling Park for the City of Mississauga, the 600m of Lake Ontario waterfront required assessment with respect to coastal process and the design of sustainable shoreline protection works. Rattray Marsh is immediately to the west of the Park which required the design and implementation of a shoreline protection system that would not have detrimental impacts to the existing barrier beach protecting the marsh.  The design of a headland and beach system provides the public with waterfront access which was key element to the overall Park design. JSW undertook a study which assessed the wave climate under various conditions as well as long and cross shore transport all of which was reviewed and accepted by MNR, DFO, The Waterfront Regeneration Trust and the Credit Valley Conservation Authority.

JSW+ has been involved with coastal engineering, marina development and shoreline protection since the company’s inception. Recent project have include, Wellington on the Lake at the foot of Brant Street in Burlington, Bal-Harbour and Sea Side Village in Stoney Creek to West Bay Lagoon Hotel and Marina, Doha, Qatar.
