Santa's Village Road (Muskoka Road 15) requires upgrades and safety feature improvements.
Road repairs are planned from Beaver Creek Bridge to the entrance of Santa's Village Theme Park.

August, 2021 - Community Survey - Santa's Village Road
Survey now closed. Thank you for your feedback! We'll be sharing more updates, soon.


We Heard You.
The District has worked over the years to identify and address the concerns we've heard from our community about this project. Tree removals, road and shoulder widths, pedestrian safety and speeding vehicles were all top priorities that we have been working to incorporate as we work to improve the road but maintain its charming character.

The District delivered a presentation and proposed recommendations to Bracebridge General Committee on July, 2021 - a copy of the webcast is available on the Town of Bracebridge's website.


We're Working with Santa's Village Theme Park.
The District and Town of Bracebridge are committed to supporting our area partners. Since 2019, we have been working with Santa's Village Theme Park on requirements to support their growing operation. They need to install a private water main service and sanitary force main. To do this, it must run beneath the travelled lanes of Santa's Village Road, coincidentally, exactly where the reconstruction project is planned.

This presented a unique partnership opportunity. Having this relationship means we can reduce disruption to our community to accommodate both projects successfully, and share design and engineering investigations. We're looking forward to coordinating construction efforts to maximize benefits to residents and to support the operation upgrades needed at Santa's Village Theme Park. It is important to note that this is a private, commercial service installation for Santa's Village Theme Park only.

On March 22, 2021, we delivered a report to District Council to continue working with the same consultant working with Santa's Village Theme Park for the design and construction of their new underground service. We're looking forward to coordinating construction efforts to maximize benefits to residents and to support the operation upgrades needed at Santa's Village Theme Park.


What's Happening Now?
We are under tight timelines to complete the proposed design that accommodates both projects, together. We are working with our consultants to balance the valuable feedback we've received from our community with public safety requirements and Ministry standards. The District delivered a presentation and proposed recommendations to Bracebridge General Committee on July, 2021 - a copy of the webcast is available on the Town of Bracebridge's website. We are currently reviewing the feedback from the Survey issued in August, 2021 and look forward to reporting back to Engineering and Public Works Committee in September.
