City staff have told the Beaches Lions Club to scrap plans to sublease dock space at Ashbridges Bay to a company that rents WaveRunners, small powered watercraft similar to Jet Skis or Sea Doos.

Also at issue is a concrete pad that the company, Toronto WaveRunners, built along the docks beside the Lions Club boathouse so it could put up a storage shed.

Ryan Glenn, business services manager for Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation, says the WaveRunner plan doesn’t fit the intended use of the Lions’ facility at Ashbridges Bay as a not-for-profit sailing club.

Glenn said the city only found out about the plan when a parks employee saw Toronto WaveRunners staff pouring cement on the site, which is part of the conservation land owned by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
