This playground was identified as a priority for replacement in the ‘Parks Refresh’ public survey conducted in June 2022. The existing playground equipment will be removed and replaced in a new location in the northwest corner of the park.
The current playground structure is over 30 years old and has reached the end of its lifecycle. The new playground equipment will meet Canadian Safety Association standards for safety and accessibility and offers a broad range of play opportunities for children from 18-months to 12-years-old and beyond.
Work was originally scheduled for November 2022, but inclement weather has pushed construction to Spring 2023.
In the spring, crews will remove the existing wooden structure and prepare the new site in the northwest corner of the park.
The new safer, playground also includes:
- two benches
- two picnic tables
- waste receptacle
The project will cost $50,000 and work is expected to be completed in Spring 2023.
