Lakewood is a planned lakeside cottage community of over 550 acres of heavily forested property, situated on the Lake Huron side of the Bruce Peninsula, 30 km north of Wiarton, Ontario. The property surrounds West Little Lake and is closely bordered by Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
At Lakewood, the major focus has centered on environmental preservation and the creation of a natural, peaceful community where the sense of wilderness will remain even after the property is fully developed. The careful approach and sensitivity to the site, the wildlife, and planning policies combine the essential ingredients of responsible development.
Lakewood's pristine setting, which totally encompasses West Little Lake, will be most welcome to those seeking the enjoyment of nature, wildlife and a sense of wilderness, as well as the vast recreation opportunities of the Bruce.
Health care is provided in the area from locations in Tobermory, Lion's Head, Wiarton and Owen Sound.
All surface water features, including the lake, streams and wetlands are protected by buffers of natural vegetation. Existing buffers have been retained around the development to provide separation from adjacent land use. In order to preserve the natural state of the lake, in addition to the natural buffers, fishing, swimming and motorized watercrafts are prohibited in Little West Lake.
Tree and habitat protection plans are in place for all greenspace areas as well as for the private lots. Protection plans for all vegetation and wildlife have been set up to maintain the overall forested appearance of the site and ensure co-existence with the wildlife.
Existing wildlife will be retained and, through management techniques, possibly enhanced!
Through detailed planning in collaboration with the community's own environmental plans and various government agencies, over 230 acres of the site have been designated for Nature Preservation, Tree and Habitat Protection or Recreational Zones.
