April 2023

Online Survey

From April 17 to May 1, 2023, an online survey collected feedback and preferences on multiple playground options. The design team will use the community feedback collected in this survey to develop a single playground design.

Alderwood Memorial Park is located at 215 Sheldon Ave.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing set with:
    • four swings for ages two to five
  • One swing set with:
    • four swings for ages five and up
  • Two climbing structures with small slide and medium slide
  • A hexagon dome climber
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to 12
  • Additional seating
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting to the playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area. This will not include any new improvements to other areas of the park.
