Meet your neighbours at Westbrook Meadows Park
August 10, 2016 -
Westbrook Meadows Park, Kingston's newest park, is set to open next week and residents are invited to celebrate. The neighbourhood meet and greet will take place in the park on Wednesday, August 17 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Located in the city's west end on Mandara Dr., the new park features a playground with multi-use sports court, walking trails and landscaping. This new park was designed by Basterfield and Associates Inc., Landscape Architects and constructed by Len Corcoran Excavating Limited. The local community provided feedback on the conceptual design through the public consultation process.
"The park at Westbrook Meadows is a great example of what happens when Kingstonians get involved and provide feedback on the types of recreational spaces their communities need," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development, recreation and leisure services.
Unsworth adds that the Westbrook Meadows Park meet and greet is an opportunity to recognize all those who made the project a success.
Light snacks and drinks will be offered.
The rain date for the grand opening is Wednesday, August 24.
