We stole the idea from Winnipeg and put out a call for design entries. The challenge was to build something interesting over lifeguard towers that stand unused all winter. About 200 applications poured in. Five towers got the treatment, attracting lots of people who wouldn’t normally see the beach at this time of year.
It’s nice down there (and would be even nicer if off-leash dogs were kept in their designated area while the stations are up). Next year, our local councillor hopes to have all 13 lifeguard towers done up.
