Upgrades to parks out for public discussion
October 18, 2013 -
October is shaping up to be parks development month in the City, which has scheduled public consultations to gather input on proposed upgrades to a number of parks.
"Scheduled upgrades are part of the regular life-cycle of a park. Park revitalization projects improve the quality of the public space but these projects require feedback in the planning stages. If you are interested in one of these parks, now is a great time to have your say on plans to improve it", says Neal Unsworth, Manager, Parks Development. He points out that park elements vary widely and are chosen to meet the needs of the users and to suit the particular characteristics of the setting.
Here is the line-up of upcoming park public consultations:
- Rotary Park playground improvements (the park at 1280 Coverdale Dr.): 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 23 in Reddendale Hall, Centre 70, 100 Days Rd
- Halifax Drive Park development (the park at 1170 Halifax Dr.): 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 28 in Room A/B at the INVISTA Centre, 1350 Gardiners Rd.
- Greenwood Park West Parkette development (the park located on Waterside Way): 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Army, Navy Airforce Unit, 317 Gore Rd.
- Douglas R. Fluhrer Park visioning (the waterfront park that runs between Anglin Bay and the Woolen Mill): 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30 in Memorial Hall, City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
Public consultations were held earlier this month on proposed upgrades to Riverview Park, the Friendship Park tennis court in conjunction with a park master plan and the Riverside Park playground.
