The process of improving the facilities at Dreamland Resort has been a continuous process since the opening of the park in 1998.
Resort management continues to uphold the highest standards in resort living. (Nothing less is acceptable.)
This page provides a look forward to upcoming changes, and a partial history of changes over the years.
The beach area was upgraded with a new retaining wall, steps into the water, and a slide. Pea gravel was added to the swimming area.
Shock absorbing pea gravel was installed under the swings in the playground area.

1998 - 2016 Adding Trees - From a Farmer's Field to a First Class Resort
As late as the mid 90s, the waterfront currrently occupied by Dreamland Resort was farmland. Converting these fields into a vibrant resort has required the planting of over 1000 trees, and thousands of hedge shrubs.

Each year has also seen upgrades and improvements to the infrastructure of the resort. Scroll down this page to see how the resort has grown and expanded over the years. 2018 saw an upgrade to the UV water purification system and the addition of a new 'picnic raft' at the beach.
Several improvements were made for the 2021 season. The Snack Shack was added to the Trans Canada Trail near the pool, a chicken coop was added to the Farm Animal area, the beach was expanded, and a dump station was added to the overnight camping area.
