Celebrating Accessibility and Inclusion at Topsail Beach

Celebrating Accessibility and Inclusion at Topsail Beach

The Town of Conception Bay South continues to make great strides in accessibility and inclusion. Yesterday, Mayor Darrin Bent, joined by the Honourable Paul Pike, Minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development, and invited guests gathered at Topsail Beach Rotary Park for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new accessibility trail. 

In 2022, the Town received $50,000 through the Department of Children, Seniors, and Social Development’s Capacity Grant. The funding was used to construct a 150-meter accessible trail at Topsail Beach, enhancing one of the Town’s most popular attractions. 

“We are delighted to open this trail, which demonstrates our dedication to strengthening community bonds through accessibility. Topsail Beach is a top attraction in this province, and it was important to us to remove barriers that could hinder people from fully enjoying this beautiful area. I want to thank our partners with the provincial government who helped fund this exceptional improvement for our community,” said Mayor Darrin Bent. 

Following the ribbon cutting, the Town proudly hosted the Annual Newcomers’ Welcome Night at Topsail Beach in partnership with the Association for New Canadians. The event served as another testament to one of the Town’s core values  – a dedication to inclusivity, diversity, and unity.
