The Parks Superintendent provided an overview of management and operations, statistics and data relating to visitors, timed parking, traffic movement, re-directional planning and various aspects of the camp including the provision of security provided by the Commissionaires.

Upon reconvening after lunch, Council attended at Singing Sands, viewed the new parking lot, the new structure on site, the observation tower and interpretative signage and strolled the boardwalk. It was noted that paid parking is applicable at Singing Sands.
