Be Part of the Legacy of this 140-acre Waterfront Peninsula in Idyllic Simcoe County
Geneva Park has been under the stewardship of the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka for the past 15 years. In early 2021, the association announced the sale of Geneva Park due to unanticipated financial pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Geneva Park community responded with significant care, concern and big ideas for the future of the park, which led to the development of a process that includes an exploration of options that extend beyond the straight sale of the property.
The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka has been an organization rooted in the community for the last 110 years and is committed to looking at all possible avenues to contribute to the long-term sustainability of its charitable association while seeking the best community use of the property and ways to continue the legacy of the Park.
To that end, this unique process will take into consideration a number of values-based considerations and principles in the search for an innovative solution or partnership(s) to ensure families, groups and individuals can access this important place for generations to come. This includes the potential for continued full or partial use by the YMCA including necessary investments to address immediate and future infrastructure and capital needs of the Park, facilitating the preservation of the local environment and waterways, respecting the historical stewards of the land, including the Anishinaabe people, the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, on whose traditional territory Geneva Park is situated, and the generation of revenue to support the long term sustainability of the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka.
