Help us design three playgrounds we’re replacing by summer 2025

Our first round of engagement is closed. between February 6 and march 3, we asked the community to share their thoughts.

  • What kind of equipment you would like to see
  • What you like about the existing playground
  • If there are any specific accessible and inclusive features you would like to see included

We are reviewing your feedback and developing two playground designs for our three parks due for playground replacement next year:

For those interested, Drew Park has e a revitalization project of its own this year (including a new playground) - the first round of engagement for Drew park is running from March 5 through 31. Check out the Drew Park project page for more details and to participate in the survey.

What's next?

Timeline for this playground project showing two phases for engagement with information being reviewed following each phase. All phases work toward a final design aimed for fall 2024 and construction the following spring. There is a pin indicated we are currently reviewing feedback from our first round of engagement and we will be back with design options to share for feedback next.

Once we’ve analyzed all of the information received from engagement, we'll use the information to develop requirements for the design of new play equipment. We then send this information to specialized playground designers as part of our process for selecting new play equipment. We will review the design submissions and select the best two designs for each park to share with you for your opinions on the best design and how we can improve it even further.

Round two community engagement, with 2 designs for new play equipment for each park, will be shared in the summer of 2024.

Final designs and plans for construction will be shared in the fall of 2024, with construction starting as early in spring of 2025 pending final budget approval.
