Big Pond Beach: SOLD

Terry MacPherson

As we've been hearing in the news, people planning a trip to Big Pond Beach this summer will likely have to find a new place to park.

The Diocese of Antigonish has sold the old Parish Hall and the land around it to help pay a court settlement for victims of sexual abuse.

The land used to provide ample parking and public washrooms.

Now, all that's left is a 13 metre right-of-way that includes a narrow, gravel driveway.

Terry MacPherson is with the Big Pond Community Council, the group that owns the right-of-way.

Reporter Bobby Nock met him at Big Pond Beach and asked him who the new owners of the land around it are.
