Shoreplan Engineering Limited was retained by the Town of Grimsby to complete a class environmental assessment for shoreline protection along the shore of Murray Street and Marrocco Parks on Lake Ontario. The total length of the shoreline included in the project was approximately 300 metres.

The preferred solution for the shoreline treatment included a combination of structures and treatments. An armour stone seawall along a portion of the shore minimized intrusion into the lake, while revetment along another section minimized reflection.

The main feature of the shore treatment is a cobble beach anchored by a single armour stone groyne. The beach provides access to the waterline and maintains a natural shale cliff in the area.
