We’re working on a master plan for a future park, located in Dallan subdivision south east of Clair Road and Gordon Street in the south end of Guelph.

We want you to help us:

  • Vote on your preferred design concept
  • Share ideas about playground equipment
  • Submit comments to the design team

We’ll use your feedback to create a final concept for the park which we will share with the community this spring.

Why we create master plans

A park master plan is a blueprint that guides park design according to the space and community needs. We look at everything that makes a park a place to play, including how it’s graded, what surfaces to use, pathways, tables and benches, playground equipment, shelters and more! Some things you can see on the surface and some things are invisible. Master plans make sure our parks are functional, aesthetically pleasing and create a sense of community space.

    If I’m willing to pay to have my last name as the parks name, is that possible?

    Ali asked 4 months ago

    The naming of City assets falls under the Municipal Property and Building Commemorative Naming Policy

    https://guelph.ca/city-hall/boards-and-committees/municipal-property-and-building-commemorative-naming-committee/

    We plan to go out to the public in the Spring to request names for the park at the Dallan subdivision for the naming committee to consider. Final naming will be at the discretion of City Council when they are presented a report later in the year. You can always make a submission for the naming of Dallan Subdivision Park at that time. Please review the policy to see if your suggestion meets the criteria.

    Is there an aerial view of the Vine and the Loop plan? Where are they situated within the park boundaries? How close are the paths and play area to the townhomes backing onto the park?

    harry&joanvandam asked 4 months ago

    Hello, 

    We have added the aerial renderings of the loop and vine concepts to the Document Library on the right hand side of the project page. Have a look!

    The Loop play area is 20.9 metres from the edge of the play equipment to the east property line at the closest spot. The path is 3 metres closer. 

    The Vine play area is 13 metres from edge of play equipment to east property line, at the closest spot. There is no pathway between play equipment and property line.

    We received this question in a survey. What is the estimated length of loop for each proposal?

    4 months ago

    For the loop concept the main pathway is approximately 210 linear metres (sidewalk to sidewalk). The trail is approximately 175 linear metres (from the trail node to Clair Road)

    For the vine concept the main pathway is approximately 140 linear metres (main path to the sidewalk). The fitness loop is approximately 70 linear metres. The trail is approximately 175 linear metres (trail node to Clair Road)
