Event Details-at-a-glance


Wednesday, May 29 at 5pm


Barrie City Hall

70 Collier Street

The purpose of the rally is to tell our politicians that the Southshore (Allandale Station Park) is the last remaining piece of naturalized waterfront shoreline, and should not be the location of a Multi-Use Synthetic Sports Field.

City Council has already approved this as the preferred location in a 8-2 vote last week at council.

We are asking council to reconsider this decision.

There is also a link to a petition in the article below, so please consider signing and sharing that as well.

Hope to see you at City Hall next Wed!
