City seeks input on new community park on Wheathill Street
April 10, 2019 -
The City is seeking input on the proposed design of a new 1.5 hectare park being planned on Wheathill Street in the new West Village subdivision. The City will also be presenting information on the potential future name of the park. This new green space is being planned in partnership with the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario (CEPEO). The future park will be adjacent to the future French secondary school and is proposed to be designed to allow a fluid connection between the sites.
"This community park is being built in collaboration with CECCE and CEPEO as the new secondary school site is developed. The new park and subdivision is near Taylor-Kidd Boulevard and not far from the existing Waterloo Village subdivision," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development.
Offer your ideas for the new park – and how it should connect to the new school – at an open house 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24 in the Rona Room at the INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd. You can also offer accessibility-related feedback for the new community park online at GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca from April 24 until May 16, 2019 (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
