City seeks input on upgrades to Friendship Park
October 2, 2013 -
The City will present two concepts for upgrades to Friendship Park at a public information session at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17 in Lower Level Conference Room B at Rideaucrest Home, 175 Rideau St. (attendees must sign-in at the facility's main desk).
Friendship Park, on Carlisle Street, is a well-used neighbourhood park containing a tennis court, a half basketball court, play equipment and grassed and paved surfaces. The concepts to be presented incorporate a plan to upgrade and enhance the tennis court and show how this element can be integrated in a creative way that will meet the needs of the evolving neighbourhood.
"If you live in the Friendship Park neighbourhood and use the Park, now is your chance to come offer your feedback on these proposed improvements," says Neal Unsworth, Manager of Parks Development. He notes that public input will be used to guide development of the final design.
Construction on the upgrades to the tennis court is scheduled for 2014.
Park design enthusiasts may also be interested in a similar information session at Rideaucrest regarding Riverview Park on Rideau Street. It is set for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
