Upscale RV Park Being Considered for Toronto
Toronto’s economic development committee meets on Thursday (June 7) and will consider a report on creating an RV park in the city, according to Inside Toronto.
The report notes there are nine RV-friendly campgrounds and parks located within one hour of Toronto. However all of the current facilities operate at close to capacity during peak season. And none of the facilities offer the kinds of amenities sought by high-end RV owners.
“The analysis of the upscale RV market and the facilities currently offered in the Toronto area and in other cities in North America and Europe suggests that there may be a potential to add to our current RV facilities,” the report states.
Councillor Case Ootes for Toronto-Danforth is optimistic an RV park can be created in the city. Ootes, who first raised the idea about a year ago, brought the matter forward again in January. Ootes has said that there is a huge RV market in North America and he believes Toronto is losing out on a big opportunity for tourism.
He reported that roughly 8 million U.S. households own RVs. There are also about 800,000 RVs in Canada, he said.
