Very sad to see that the rest area was taken away for the Clyburn area. Went there every year as a child with my parents and grandfather. It was a beautiful spot with a shelter and several spots to stop and enjoy the day.

There will be a vintage clothing sale at Salty Rose's and the periwinkle cafe on Saturday and Vera Bushwack book signing on Sunday 🌞

Looking for what to do in Ingonish with kids? Why not stop by and check out the wonderful upgrades that the IDS in partnership with parks Canada have started at the local favourite, Cops Cove!

Cops cove is located across from Caper Gas in Ingonish Beach. The Ingonish development society has recently signed a lease agreement with Parka Canada which has allowed for a new designated parking area, new picnic tables for the infamous beach snacks and of course this beautiful new floating dock that is perfect for kayak & paddle board launch but also for jumping and swimming.

Cops cove has always been a local favorite and we are hopeful that in the years to come, it will be a place where many core memories are made.

As we know Ingonish has an aging population. Could mobility access be considered? The ramp to the floating dock has a steep angle and handles would be an asset

Great to see ,it’s always been well used.Are you going to put a bathroom or even Pit toilet would be great.

The kids are enjoying it! Is there still a plan in place for a shelter/washroom/lighting in the future?
